Judging by the hype around Alt Electronica artist and producer Ackson’s latest single “Blue Flux”, I’m not the only one who likes to delve into electronically contorted, genre-melting indulgently unpredictable soundscapes.
Blue Flux is the second single to be released from their EP “9TEEN8E6”, a collection of tracks which ooze ingenuity and will pierce you with the striking distinction. From Hip Hop to Glitch to Jazz to Ambiently Dark Progressive Techno, you’ll find all of that and more in the consistently beguiling instrumental track which becomes more immersive with every new evolution.
If you place any new electronica producer on your radar this year, make it Ackson. Their ability to spill soul and dystopically cathartic vibes into obscurely arrestive arrangements is unparalleled.
You can check out Blue Flux which dropped on June 25th along with Ackson’s earlier releases by heading over to SoundCloud now.
