Gear up and get ready for travel to Planet Cyclops…
The first song, “Resist,” from Subtronics and Ace Aura starts the album off on a high-energy note in which chiming bells carefully drop into a thrilling bass. Secondly, the lovely Level Up sends listeners on an intergalactic journey in “Velvet Crossbow.” The drop feels like we’re quite literally going into a space battle.
“Nightcrawler” by Cyclops begins with a suspenseful and ominous array of sounds. The tension is insane on this track and the drop will have you looking at your best friend bewildered saying “WHAT THE F*CK?!?” in the best way possible. “Bar Mitzvah Disaster” from the one and only Subtronics carries his signature sound and is an all-around bop.
“Deaths Door” from Jkyl & Hyde and Chassi is the riddim anthem that we needed on this compilation. Likewise, Guppi‘s “Ransom” also gives us that perfect experimental dubstep/riddim.
“Raveification” from Ripper is sure to be a house summer anthem. Lastly, Phoenix slows our heartbeats back down in “FLY” with some downtempo experimental bass. But the music doesn’t stop there. In other words, there are a total of 22 tracks on Planet Cyclops and all of them are some heat so be sure to go check it out. You might just find your new favorite artist…
