‘A World Apart’, Soular Order‘s third EP, is a testament to DIY dance and electronic music. Jon Maynard (the man behind SO) writes and produces all of the music himself, for what seems little financial gain. His first two EPs, ‘Edge Of The Earth’ and ‘Ascent’, were released entirely for free as digital downloads, while this most recent effort allows the listener to choose how much they are willing to pay for the four tracks, ‘In Rainbows’-style. It’s an admirable strategy, and an effective way of getting his music out there to possible fans that may not have paid attention otherwise.
