5ToK3 (Stoke) is a British musician and artist working in Brooklyn, New York. Renowned for his unique programming technique using only analog synths as well as his extensive vintage synth collection, his is essentially an analog musician in a digital world. Otherwise mysterious, choosing for his identity to remain unknown, his roots in punk and industrial sound fuse with his obsession for electronics, machines, and the synthesizer.
His new track, "Third Man," is a collaboration with hip-hop producer Louis VI, and created largely on a Buchla 200e system. Louis VI contributes the jazz-trap-inspired beats.
Here's the track, and you can go here for signposts about hearing it on Apple Music, Spotify, and SoundCloud. It's quite lovely, sort of like something you'd hear behind an Adult Swim interlude if that bunch were a little more cerebral.
5ToK3 also has a handful more Buchla 200e patches demonstrated on his Vimeo page, and they're quite engaging. Here's one:
5Tok3, we'll be stoked to hear more from you in the future!
