For DT podcast Justinas decided to focus on only one side from the polygon of his tastes, more or less. This podcast has a clear imprint of industrial vibration on its sound. Constant experiments with the rhythm and time signatures are here for a reason: from the blurred beginning till the confident end. This trial-trip was intended to show us, what a beautiful genre diversity can be reached with mainly the same set of tools and in a similar sound aesthetic.
Multiplicity dominates here. Frenzy of delays and reverberations adjoins quite naive synth lines and atmospheres. Classic militant industrial vocals are being mixed with extremely aggressive growl. All of a sudden the strong, minimalistic, marching kick sequence begins to stumble and then entirely falls into a breakbeat. Wickerwork made of gritty textured crunk experiments, juke drum patterns and dubstep atmospheres, so neat that you can almost catch a bleak ray of light coming through.
