Nick Alt creates his own formula by synthesizing soul, funk and electronica into self-described "neofunk."
On his self-produced, self-performed album, Transit, Nick Alt uses an actual LinnDrum, layered organic synths, and sly vocal hooks. The album's consistent quirkiness draws the connection between 80's synth-funk remnants and sparks of futuristic lyrical backdrops. Inspiration for the album's unconventional thematic elements stems from Alt's own interest in classic novels Fahrenheit 451 and Brave New World; Transit's cuts serve as candidates for the hypothetical soundtracks. Nick Alt's vocals remain smoothly layered in contrast to the rawer elements of the arrangements.
