Alright alright, we feel like we have been teased long enough. This bright Friday morning we’re heading on over to Gud Vibrations for the now completed Divide EP from Shadient. 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
Man, about time this came out since we’ve been teasing it for almost a month now. Anyway, serving as the conclusion of this Divide EP we were treated to “Cyclone”, a hard-hitting and in your face dubstep track. “Cyclone” actually opens the EP, which sets the tone of the entire EP pretty damn quickly. While the track is aggressive right out of the gate, “Cyclone” has some other rhythmic beat to it that makes the track entirely danceable. While it may seem a bit out of play on the EP at first, Shadient infused plenty of drum and bass elements within its DNA that “Cyclone” fits right at home. Now that the EP is finally finished, the real question is, what is Shadient going to tackle next?
