As we inch ever closer to the new EP, our artist is watching the clock tick tock away right along with us. We are bouncing back on over to Gud Vibrations for Shadient’s “Medination”, the latest yet darkest single to present itself before the release of his new EP Divide. While Shadient was created back in 2015, Shadient as made it a primary goal to continue pushing the boundaries that electronic music has set in place for him to break. Shadient has consistently looked forward into the future, which has garnered him plenty of support from Porter Robinson. Shadient has released quite a bit of music already, with most being over on Mat Zo’s Mad Zoo label.
“From the get-go, it was this world of ideas I had rushing into my head of metallic and industrial imagery, dark visual aspects and noise and bass leaning music. Some of my more primary influences initially were Gesaffelstein, Boys Noize, and Aphex Twin. Very minimalistic and dark European techno artists, but I always felt that palette could be explored more musically.” – Shadient
Alright, while we feel like we should apologize for that opening on-the-nose comment, we won’t (just deal with it). This latest track is definitely a trip down into the dark rumbling pit hidden within all of us, as Shadient sets that ever-threatening tone right out of the gate with an aggressively ticking clock. Listeners can only guess what chaos will follow, as Shadient makes it clear that he is prepared to take you on a journey through the deepest recesses of your mind. Your ears are being massacred between a multitude of stabbing synths and aggressive subsequent basslines…and we loved every minute of it.
