Artist Spotlight- Com Truise
Com Truise (AKA Seth Haley) is definitely an odd name. At a glance, you might wonder whether a guy who takes his alias from a spoonerism of the famous scientologist actor really takes himself seriously. Don’t be fooled, though—Haley knows his way around the electronic music scene. He started out living in New York and New Jersey working as an art director until starting to make music himself within the last three years.
How would one characterize Com Truise’s sound? Sometimes fun, other times nostalgic. Usually both. Always experimental. He’s known for a distinctly retro style harkening back to the 80s, and his hard, post-house approach to electronica is unmistakable (he did start out as a drum-n-bass DJ, after all). He marks his diverse collection of works with glowing synths and old school drums, creating a texture that languishes between contemplative and current. Everything in his music is active and vibrant, and while some tracks are more straightforward than others, he always manages to keep your attention—no one could accuse him of being generic. We can’t wait to feature him at our upcoming show.
