Woah, this week’s playlist is dark AF.
We are rebooting our weekly SoundCloud playlists-Pariah Plays. Every Thursday, expect an awesome mix of cool music based around a single theme. This week is all about exploring the post-Halloween darkness, featuring tracks from top producers–known and up & coming.
Listen to the entire playlist:
1. Aglory – Nyctophilia
Aglory. What a producer. A core member of Tchami’s collective, Confession, the Parisian producer pumps out dark four-on-the-floor tunes like a madman. While Nyctophilia is a bit of a throwback, Aglory recently released an EP on Kannibalen Records–the same label as #1 in our playlist, Kai Wachi. Nyctophilia combines dark techno sounds at midtempo pace, chugging and pushing through the sonic sphere like a freight train from hell.
2. Crystalize – Strange Sounds
“The new age is here.” Strange Sounds is the embodiment of a long-term project. Started over 2 years ago, the track was recently finished with thousands of hours of work, redos, and flips. Strange Sounds is a sonic treat, bringing in hard electro vibes with the sound design that only Crystalize can offer.
3. MIME – M0ve
This is probably the most techno song we’ll post on the blog. It’s great. Supported Dillon Francis and Drezo at their Lab b2b set, Move is a deep groove with crushing forward momentum. The track powers through the air with a driving, rolling bassline complimented by sparse percussion. While not much is known about the mysterious MIME, it’s no doubt that he creates some seriously dope sh*t.
4. Kai Wachi – RED
Ah, yes. Kai Wachi. Pariah’s from Boise, Kai’s from Boise, so needless to say we have some roots. The Kannibalen Records star is on a warpath to destroy the world with his hybrid bass sounds. RED combines the structures of electro and breaks with grungy elements to make an anthem fitting for an alien invasion or smashing the hell out of zombies.
5. Kompany & Blvk Sheep – Hold Up
Woah. ICON Collective grad Kompany paired up with NYC bass lord Blvk Sheep to create a monstrous masterpiece of vicious bass and frantic percussion. Kompany’s raucous sound design rips through the tune like an ax on flesh. Hold Up is a guaranteed show-stopper, and a hype tune to peak any mix.
