The Prodigy Artists (NGHTMRE, SLANDER, SVDDEN DEATH) signee and one of our Artists to Watch in 2020 has released music via tastemaker labels like Circus Records, Disciple Round Table, UKF and more. His cyberpunk-infused sound has made him a favorite of artists and fans alike and it’s only a matter of time before the Georgia-born, Brooklyn-residing artist hits the main stage.
Today, we’re premiering title track “Red Turbulence,” which opens with neuro-inspired reese bass, boom bap style drum patterns and ultra pitched-down vocals. The drop, which is my personal favorite from the forthcoming EP, has a vocalized synth melody that makes this release one of the most creative pieces I’ve heard from a producer as of late. A haunting cinematic outro showcases the musical theory genius that this synesthete posseses.
“In this track there’s a whole world and a story I can draw from. Lots of inspiration is coming from the dark, yet beautiful kind of fantasy and world around it. I wanted to fuse the cyber world with some gothic vibes. So I wanted to create haunting, futuristic, and beautiful episode in this track. I started using heavier sounds for the rap (drop) part and that’s where I wanted to make it feel like actual synths were rapping between each other/dissing each other. I love all tracks in here, but personally I feel the most connected to the world within Red Turbulence, so it’s the top track from the EP for me.” – Nitepunk
