Today we'll be looking at PrototypeRaptor who is another upbeat melodic electro/house/dubstep enthusiast. I have a hard time picking what tracks to put here because I like all of them! His remixes bring new life to old songs I love and even his quote on quote "studio reject failures" sound flipping awesome! The first tune on his "studio reject" (I believe is supposed to be called 'Drive Mustang') is actually my favorite! I'm shocked to see his play count on his soundcloud so low. I have a feeling PrototypeRaptor is about to explode in popularity.
With an early introduction to the world of house and music production at the age of 13, PrototypeRaptor (aka Jonathan Paulsen), now 21, has been a relatively unknown, yet consistent force of electronic music. After fashioning his iconic “R” out of lines taken from his sequencer, he quickly became known for combining his electro-fidget sensibilities with an unusual melodic design. Backed by artists such as Wolfgang Gartner and Porter Robinson, and soon to be released on multiple labels, PrototypeRaptor looks poised to finally break out – get ready for the year of the Raptor.
I can certainly see the Wolfgang Gartner & Porter Robinson influence in his tracks.
Most of the tracks I'm sharing after the jump are melodic electro house but the last song, Flashback, is actually a brilliant progressive house track. He does have a tendency to put several songs inside one so be aware.
