“Since the 2003 release of Tranceformed, I’ve spent quite some time working within the underground scene, absorbing all the different sides of electronica as they related to my personality. I decided to release a double EP, as opposed to one full length album, because it better represents the various sides of who I am and who I’ve become in that time. The process of emerging and then submerging best describes the personal process I’ve gone through over the last eight years. First emerging from a dark state of mind and elevating myself, then better understanding myself, delving deeper, submerging. In a nutshell, Emerge/Submerge is my way of saying that after all I’ve been through -good and bad- I still have a desire to celebrate life,” stated Kaydean.
Emerge/Submerge will be available on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody and other online outlets. For videos, tour dates and additional information, visit kaydean.net.
