If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that nothing hits quite like that “New Car Smell,” and Viskus just made that more true than ever before. Finally, after a year and a half of being played exclusively in sets, “New Car Smell” makes its highly anticipated arrival, closing out the year on a high note.
Nick Krauskoff of Viskus continues to make a name for himself with his atypical beats, an arsenal of samples, and bottomless baselines. Taking no days off this year, he wowed crowds at Big Fam Festival, Bass Ribbon Pines, and Big Foot Electro. As well as being direct support to Dirt Monkey, DMVU, and most recently announced, Notixx. He’s also been pushing out some severe heat in the studio. Like his latest three-track Courage To Fly EP, which was a proper synopsis of his sound, a sound fans can’t get enough of.
The way Viskus just pulled up in a brand new whip with that “New Car Smell.” The track begins with an enticing build that assures listeners they need to buckle up and hold on for what’s to come. Then, without warning, Viskus tosses you right into the fast lane only the baddest of bad mon can handle. With each passing second, this track abolishes all expectations and twists the theories of sound. As unpredictable as 5-o-clock traffic, we weave ourselves through the mind-maze that’s “New Car Smell.”

November recognizes Native American Heritage Month. Since the first Europeans set foot in North America, Native Americans endured innumerable atrocities. From the genocide during colonization to the continued destruction of the land stolen from them. Native Americans face oppression to this day, as well as ongoing disrespect to places and practices that are sacred to their culture.
