The Untz premiered our track ‘Traumatism’ and talked about the Warpball project:
We’ve been importing a ton of our neuro, halftime, and psybass from the international set, of late. In line with that trend, the long-standing Outtallectuals brand has a brand new compilation coming out soon. Warpball ties into an indie video game of the same name (check out a beta here: warpballgame.com), and in order to capture and convey the time-warp, glitched out aesthetic, Outtallectuals had to call on its most revered band of off-kilter sound design maniacs. Enter Mr. Bill, Halfred, Hullabalo0, Duffrey, 5AM, and more. The cream of the crop of psychedelic audio warriors assembled a wild collection of trippy tunes that bring the game to life. We’ve selected a pair of French producers to debut today with “Traumatism,” the brainchild of Ac-Tone and High Dude. Glitchy, wandering, and fragmented blips of ephemera shimmer and gleam in the fractaled outersphere of this otherwordly tune. In a word, it’s mesmerizing, as if its sole purpose is to draw you deeper and deeper into the Warpball world, which, I suppose, is the task of any video game composer. These artists are new to us, but consider our interest piqued for them, the comp, and the subsequent Outtallectual releases.

Here’s a nice review from Juno:
Kiwi duo, Morrison, are back on their native Iron Shirt Recordings with another killer selection of stealthy, ninja-like dubstep fort those who like their flow cold and peppered with meditative sonics for the late night sessions. “Terra” and “Formation” are the two cuts in question, both tunes which have enough weight beneath them to blow your speakers out; stealthy, cerebral and deeply moving, these are bad, bad tunes that recall the best of Mala’s Deep Medi imprint. Sick Cycle’s remix of “Terra” goes even deeper into the wormhole thanks to an additional pounding of bass, while Dubmentalist’s version staggers more on the dub end of the spectrum through hefty percussive shots and sporadic Rastafari melodies, which leaves High Dude to provide some downtempo goodness on his own take – probably the best remix of the three. Recommended.

Outta’ review: “Heading into winter and emerging from the darkness that is the constant media shower today, High Dude and Lck hit the Outta sound waves with this signature deep textural bass, portraying a mirror of society, observing itself.”
Баxтак review: “Personally, I’ve been struggling to keep away from the media, news and all this political bullshit that’s projected into my thoughtscape. Every time I realize that I’ve lost my focus again due to the above, I shake my head, take a deep breath and get back to what I was doing. I feel like this song portrays exactly that: The subtle use of atmospherics, switching between news channels, and all these layers of information are suddenly stopped by the blasting drops of bass, prompting the listener to concentrate on the deep groove within, rather than the surface distractions. It’s crazy how an atmospheric instrumental track can respond to our emotions in such an intricate way. I guess that’s how you can tell it’s good art.”
