Rediisin is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist and producer Edison Dietrich at Psydel Sound Labs. Starting as a drummer over 15 years ago, Edison began songwriting during the beginning of the COVID-19 Quarantine. In his second year of songwriting, Rediisin has established a production process using drum machines and synths over reverberant guitars and vocals creating a blend of noise pop, synth-rock, and punk.
For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick three words to describe it?! If three words just aren't enough then tell us more!!
Restless, noisy, and energetic. After over 15 years of performing, 5 years of teaching, and 2 years of songwriting, my head is noisy as hell and it shows in my music. I want to make music so different it can't be identified by the genre, but rather the artist.
What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else?) Tell us why.
I was a musician for many years but only recently did I consider myself an artist. I absolutely love performing whereas songwriting is a new obsession. However overall across the board, recording is my favourite part. I love giving ideas tangibility because that's "where the magic happens". Recording and producing is where my art thrives, I don't make crazily composed music but crazily produced music haha.
Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you?
I actually record all at home. Recording is part of my daily life and a big part of my artistry so it only makes sense to me to keep it as close as possible. Recording in my own house is both more comfortable and more stressful. Everytime I went into studio, I'd feel pressed for time but I would always go home with something vs at home I can spend the same amount of time and come out with nothing useable. But I wouldn't change how I record even without Covid going on, it's become ingrained with me.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
I got to say, I mostly work on music whether it's creating my own work, producing for someone else, or teaching music or I'll be working on my image whether its visuals, fashion, or promotion. If not, I spend time with my family either gardening, playing ping pong or mahjong, or Animal Crossing.
Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why?
This changes for me constantly because I love finding new music and artists. Overall, I got to say Jack Stauber because he makes what he wants and it's always developing in a way I would never expect. I really enjoy hearing unfiltered artistry, just raw music that wasn't meant to just sell, but to exist and grow off of.
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it?
Most of my lyrics don't directly mean anything. I write music to reflect an overall emotion, and what I say may not directly connect to the story of the song, but show the emotion through the vocal line. Just like an instrument. Out of all my songs released so far, I've connected to the lyrics and meaning of Noises in the Moment the most. The song is directly about all the noises in my head that I couldn't piece together at the time. This was actually the first set of lyrics I've ever wrote and put to music.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?
I got a whole line of songs coming out that's going to lead to a album in the Fall. Realtime, coming out on June 3, is the first of my releases with my improved sound. Over the past winter, I worked on my recording and mixing techniques so during this spring/summer, you can get a better look into what I do. I got a big enough vault to keep y'all entertained for the year haha.
