If you could imagine what it would sound like if Gary Numan veered into the arena of hypersonic EDM hip hop, you may get an idea of what is in store when you hit play on Chaz Matador’s latest single, Bone Cage.
The full-frontal production isn’t for the faint-hearted; the Albuquerque-born, Portland-based artist is one of the few bold enough to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable. Forget giving Beastie Boys a run for their money; he challenges them to a sprint across the length of a futuristically warped stratosphere and holds them to ransom.
In his own words, he’s a “botched love spell eternally pregnant with imagination”, and his music channels perpetual dissatisfaction with nothing and everything into a mosaic of mediums typical of the attention-span obliterated millennial. We officially love him.
You can watch the official music video for Bone Cage on YouTube. Although, we’d probably advise against it if you’re epileptic. That probably goes for the soundscape itself.
