Ac-Tone x High Dude – Traumatism (Warpball Project with Outtallectuals)

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.
