Colorhythm returns to Modern Ruin with a darker take on his unique sound.
A no-nonsense start to the release with 'Lavina' takes us into a different
side to Colorhythm's production - a gritty and techy roller switching seamlessly
between halftime and triplet grooves.
Title track 'Fission' starts off with a deliberate intro sequence that funnels into
what might be the footwork soundtrack of a nuclear reactor. Percussion is the
standout as Colorhythm plays with shakers, hats and almost breakbeat sounds
to create a cloudy and moody soundscape.
'Bionic' is the no-holds-barred successor to 'Fission'. Growling synthesizers
amidst tension inducing melodic progressions make for a compelling antithesis
to the title track.
Another Modern Ruin favourite, Stayhigh, rounds up this release with a remix
of 'Bionic'. Chopped vocals and typical footwork triplets smartly intertwine
with the initial groove and vibe of 'Bionic' while emphasizing the urgent and
frantic nature of footwork, creating a pleasing sonic crescendo.
