The name ModEnv is an abbreviation of Modulated Envelope, a technical term for modulating time. The duo consisting of Remco Hoogsteen and Kyle de la Porte uses deep synth bass grooves, pads to dream away, robotic vocals and screaming lead sounds. In other words, enough ingredients for a danceable and interesting music evening! They are supported by the artistic designer Jan Herman de Boer, who brings the music to life through amazing visuals. In 2021, the first EP ModEnv was released, which you can listen to on Spotify.
