Roughquest - Hybrid EP
If you enjoyed last night's 502 post / 500K View Sammy Jackson Spactacular, this release is definitely for you. Sorry, no disco dinosaurs this time, however, the amazingly soothing bass/vocal merging is definitely ripe in Cut Records' latest release, Hybrid EP, by Berlin producer Roughquest.
Even the first track, "Outside Of You" takes you to a deep crystal cavern somewhere under the Pacific Ocean, where it haunts you for awhile before drowning you in the kind of pressure only the deep blue can provide. A short upward swim of 4x4 follows (almost foreshadowing), before placing 100PSI of pressure back onto your head and dragging you back down into the caverns. Which is exactly where any sensible person would prefer to be. Yep, that's just the first track, there's two more journeys where that came from... and no I'm not going to spoil them by interpreting them with random analogies for your amusement.
Just listen to it, it's exquisitely crafted and available for literally any price you choose to donate. I implore you to support indie music labels, but this needs to be in your catalogue regardless.
