FractalStein was one of the first artists to release on my own label a few years ago, over at Dynasty Shit, and he’s been dropping bass bombz ever since. And I’ll be honest, my favorite instrument in the world: “ANYTHING THAT SOUNDS LIKE THE FUNKY WORM” is played out (all original in this case) in the first track on this album. I was hooked from there. The rest of it is dope, too, I promise you that. This is NOT one to miss ….. ALSO – for those of you reading this little text here, this happens to be the 420th post to the site. I just noticed that. Ha. But anyway…Here’s a write-up by Spencer of Epoxy Records tell you all about the new album!
@FractalStein reveals the Metaselfie LP on @EpoxyRecords. Transmuting charged thunderous kicks to electroplated bass slushees with intuitive nature. The Chicago resident liquifies both protoplasms and processors to slime with tweeter twisting, gangster certified melodies, loose chrome wobblers at 999 degrees Fahrenheit to overheat the operating system!
1-15 order: slower to louder bangers
1 2fractal4u- metaselfie – slower, introductory, west side funk synth, long guttural but clean bass tones, brain tunneling mids processed through robot circuitry
3 Dementia – 2chainz melodies, big grit chopper kicks, wonky sirens chatter through chrome chambers, bass slimes into the cracks like wood putty
7 Don’t Stop – low to the ground sex appeal, alluring climactic vocal chops, smooth machinery at a metalwork factory
9 Essential – energized speed turned up energies, trill melodies, relentless bass with extra squelch, technique clacking snare, echoes of
11 Iced Out – bass squeezed from the slushy machine, loose wobbles crack the lid like shaken soda pop, flipping the lid off the , speaker crushing erosion
2Inna Net – wrapped in the strings of a spider web, slow glitch wobbles slide under elastic samples, like a box of bouncy balls thrown in a hallway
8 Robot Love – tweaked robot speak twangs between affirmative kicks to turn subwoofer into fan on a hot day of millennial summer love
4 Rockets – melodies climb and ascend then explode with a flash-bang kick while ignited embers stream across the night sky
5 Sad Storms
10 FractalStein & ZoSo – Brain Damage – Twisted Tweeters, 999 degrees Fahrenheit melts brain out of wax exoskeleton
Rockets (Moldavibe Remix) – dark and absurd contrast
Essential (TSRX Remix)
