8udDha bl0od – YAng: Experimental Electronic Transcendence

If your usual transcendent soundscapes don’t allow you to reach the same plateau anymore, you’ll want to check out up and coming experimental artist 8udDha bl0od’s uniquely upraising single “YAng”.

YAng was ingeniously released alongside their similar mix “Y!n” in March 2020. The tones are slightly more ominous in Yang, however, both of the immersive instrumental mixes efficaciously dominate your consciousness. So, even though you can detect phantasmal hints of melancholy and conflict, by the time you reach the outro, you’ll feel suitably aurally cleansed.

Tracks such as YAng which require a deep intrinsic investment may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But we can definitely appreciate 8udDha bl0od’s ability to lock into your psyche and arrest your emotions.

You can check out 8udDha bl0od’s single Yang for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.

Excellent Jacket releases eleven-track sonic album ‘1000 eyes’

A sonic experiment at it’s finest, taking you on a crazy journey through their evergrowing change of sound is Excellent Jacket’s new anthology ‘’1000 eyes’’. It embarks on a discovery of unique styles, feeding of a wide range of human emotions.

Throughout you’re taken on a rollercoaster of ups and downs through a series of sounds that create short, poignant yet catchy tracks.

Some are mysterious and dark others have a more joyful element. There is a combination of sadness, confusion, and happiness and the way that in every single song it gives off a different feeling through the use of high and low tempos, it’s creative and talented.

Without even having to use vocals, they’ve managed to create something for the listeners solidly based on sound taking them through an absolute whirlwind of emotion. With the first few tracks sounding like a horror game theme tune, to infiltrate panic and confusion, with a heart-racing beat and thrilling laughs.

Excellent Jacket have created a piece of art, it’s something that gets you hooked and proves that you don’t always have to have vocals to make an excellent album.

Be sure to check it out, you can listen to the album here on soundcloud.
