Pacific Heights

Bio

Pacific Heights is the solo project of Wellington-based songwriter and producer Devin Abrams. Best known for the fifteen years he spent as one of the founding members of New Zealand group Shapeshifter, of late Devin's focus has returned to his solo work, heralding the arrival of a new Pacific Heights album titled The Stillness.

The first Pacific Heights album in eight years, The Stillness is a work that pays homage to his musical past while also giving Devin the freedom to present his own vision on progressive electronic music. The album showcases Devin’s incredible knack for transforming the sonic into the cinematic. The rich textures, smoky edges, and flaring electronic surges, coupled with a number of standout guest performances make for a truly breath-taking collection of music.

The album features guest appearances from a small but perfectly formed collection of New Zealand musicians including Deanne Krieg, Jen Turner, Louis Baker and Shaan Singh (Drax Project). "Collaborating with these beautiful and talented people on the album kept me sane at times and provided some refreshing musical perspectives," says Devin.

For Devin, The Stillness is a statement on the emotional state that led to the album. "It encapsulates some very deep personal trials and served as a vessel for those pains to be broken," he explains. "I'm deeply attached to the album but feel ready for it to take flight and move into its own space". “It’s a moment of pause and peace above troubled waters.”

Since he began recording as Pacific Heights in 2002, Devin has used his unique command of melody and atmosphere to carve out his own lush takes on jungle, drum & bass, deep house, soul, hip-hop, future beats and beyond. Release by release, and performance by performance, he has continued to assert his importance to electronic music in New Zealand.

The Stillness is further proof of Devin’s musical forward thinking and strong ability to balance current trends with artistic endeavour
