Track Review

Sound Design

Hard and heavy sound design. A great variety of distorted effects that brings dirty kicks, and tight, slushy snare-hits. Also, the bell choir plays a complicated rhythm that is a most gratifying din. Brace those precious ears, it is tumultuous techno trip.

Furthermore, the transient beats have their soloing parts two times in the track. In between them is a gentle pad, rough drone, and a noisey downer with a stuttering effect. These three instruments produce an astral soundscape in contrast to the beat-conscious counterpart. Consequently, this contrast makes for an intense atmospheric listening experience.

Compelling techno track for its beat-centric composition–and utter chaotic rhythmic techniques. The beats of the bell choir is tense and disorienting for its seemingly random beat. While this alone is amazing, they also make for a tempting experiment in beat-mixing. For example, try increasing the tempo and slowing it back down again across a measure of the bell choir beat.

Genre Defying Style

Not your mainstream style techno track. Its rough textured instruments appeal to hard-techno. Such instruments in  “Slobodna” are seemingly reminiscent of the dark techno feel from artists among the Noisj record label. This underground electronic music label by artists Carnage & Cluster of the Netherlands promotes a similar hard-techno style. Familiarize and re-experience the doom-like vibes from their premium label, here. “Slobodna” need not be lobbed into a genre because it is best appreciated as demonstration of musical talent.

Although the search for a full-length demonstration of the track on social media was fruitless, the required purchase necessary to hear the entire track is money well spent. “Slobodna” is a must have track for listeners seeking hard-hitting percussion and dark vibes.
