Exclusive early listen to ‘Day 5 Midnight Jazz’ and Q&A with prolific producer Tryangle Man

We sat down with Tryangle Man, who is set to unveil his latest album, Discovery Of Pangea, on May 18th, 2024 via his newly-established imprint Tryangle Man Records. The record promises an electronic project with a refreshing fusion of jazz, classical and Middle Eastern sonic flavours. Renowned for his emotive and spacious compositions that seamlessly blend deep house, melodic techno and progressive house with electro-jazz, Tryangle Man has been enchanting audiences across the globe from London to Beirut and beyond. In the making for over two years, each track on the album represents a day of discovery, meticulously refined and tested through live performances to real dance floors. The fifth track off the album, ‘Day 5 Midnight Jazz’, is available to stream early exclusively via PLAYY below. The track is driven by a deliciously groovy piano bass line paired with an electro-swing beat, while jazzy chords and intricate electronic arrangements carry a lively piano line that weaves playfully around the composition. ‘Day 5 Midnight Jazz’  is impossible not to move to, offering us an infectious appetiser of what is to come with the rest of the LP.


Tryangle Man will be celebrating the launch of Discovery Of Pangea with an epic release party (with guest list spots available) on May 18th at Notting Hill Arts Club. 


Stream ‘Day 5 Midnight Jazz’ and read our interview with Tryangle Man below:



Set the tone for us. Why the arts?

In a galaxy far far away, I was introduced to music at a young age, learning classical piano and drums. It sparked something inside, pushing to create sounds, melodies, and perform live. That drive led me to Earth, to pursue a Master’s in music at Berklee College of Music, where I fine-tuned my skills and picked up new ones. Music isn’t just a hobby; it’s how I filter and express everything that happens in life.


In an alternate universe where you aren’t a producer, what career would you pursue?

If THIS is not the alternate universe you are talking about, then I would be a carpenter. Or any job that lets me be creative with my hands.


What got you into electro-jazz? Do you recommend any artists for curious listeners?

The rhythm! When I listen to music, I’m drawn to the rhythm of the drums, piano, and bass. There’s something about the live feel, the spontaneity—it’s what I aim to capture in my own creations, that sense of improvisation. One artist I highly recommend for this vibe is Ost & Kjex, especially their track ‘Mosambique’.


Take us through your collection of gear, tech or software that accompanies your creative expression.

Unfortunately, I suffer from GAS (gear acquisition syndrome). I did set myself a golden rule. No new machine until I perfect the one that’s in front of me. It doesn’t help that I am a fast learner! 


All jokes aside, I have a collection of Elektron boxes, Arturia synths, 1010 music boxes, outboard gear, Nord Piano, more groove boxes, a couple of mics and miscellaneous instruments.  Basically a lot of instruments amassed during the years that help shape each track. I start by jamming on one machine then slowly add another. If the flow is right and the music takes shape naturally, I lay it out for recording. I use Ableton for the arrangements, finishing touches, mixing and then mastering. This is the most fun and creative process because you get to experiment a lot and you can loose track of time.


What gets your creative juices flowing?

That is a difficult question because it always depends on the mood. 

Some days, it feels like everything is happening all at once, pulling me in different directions without a moment to catch my breath. But the instant I lay my hands on an instrument, the chaos fades away. A single chord from my electric piano has the power to silence all my worries, creating space for creativity and transporting me to my happy place.


How have you refined your craft since you entered the industry?

Consistent practice is key, no matter what. Even on days when I lack motivation to create, I still push myself to make something, even if it never sees the light of day.

Additionally, I firmly believe that making mistakes is essential for honing my craft, especially in the raw atmosphere of a live performance with a real audience. It’s through these errors that I refine and improve my skills.


What’s on your current favourite playlist?

Atjazz, Stimming, Moby, Stavroz, Trentmøller, Boards of Canada, among others. 


Any other exciting projects that you are working on that you would like to share?

I’m putting together a release party for the album Discovery Of Pangea on May 18th at the Notting Hill Arts Club in London. After that, I plan to take the show on the road to various locations.


Famous last words?

In case you didn’t know, I’m a space being that comes in peace. I was sent to Earth by my ancestors to blow your f***ing minds.


Thank you for this interview, I really hope you enjoy the rest of the album.
