Age of Distrust is upsetting as it is innovative, somehow confrontational without ever really taking any kind of discernible shape. It shifts and tumbles out of the darkness like it wants something from you. Sharp, unexpected textures bubble up from long, low rumbles and melt into pitched-down vocal samples from another era.
I’m really excited to be part of this release! Check out their individual Bandcamp pages (The Creeping Man / Black Pill Machine) and stay tuned for Age of Distrust, out 13 May! Name your price!
A blend of beauty and circuitry hides a hint of danger in this techno-infused love letter to 2000-era jungle legends Ed Rush & Optical. Sharp FX and angular chords circle a hard acoustic funk break while an 808 bass warbles under the surface. Shit gets ridiculous in the bridge when Cindy busts a fuse and all techno hell breaks loose. Talk about beauty and the beast… she’s both.
Twinkling keys and sparkling CR-78s break the locks while a jazz band plays for the clueless guests in the courtyard below. Watery analog pads keep watch as crystal clear breaks rifle through drawers and crack open the safe. Finally deep sonic wubs bag the goods and disappear across moonlit rooftops with a fistful of diamonds. The jungle cat burglar strikes again!
Now boarding all VIP passengers for Orbr’s melodic jungle slammer Uptakes! Buckle up and prepare for close encounters with a swarm of fierce bass warbles, endless classic breaks, shimmering pads, smooth liquid vocals, and throwback rave samples. Let’s get high!
