Darkwave rising star Verasect drops haunting new track, ‘Catch Your Breath’.

Verasect has just dropped the second single from his upcoming album ‘Sleep Stories’, which is scheduled to be released September 28. This time, the talented darkwave DJ and producer has teamed up with indie-pop star Dominique for the vocals in the latest single, ‘Catch Your Breath’. On board for the mixing and mastering of the entirety of Verasect’s soon to be released album is Dave ‘Rave’ Ogilvie (Tool, Killing Joke, Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson), as well as award-winning Pete Lyman (FKA Twigs, Lykke Li, Banks, St. Vincent), respectively. It’s no wonder every track we’ve heard so far oozes with an infectious industrial synth sound. ‘Catch Your Breath’ is no exception.

Verasect’s newest single immediately grabs the listener’s attention with glitch-infused industria, which contrasts beautifully with Dominique’s pure vocals. There’s a gorgeously haunting synth melody that takes over in the bridge of the song which builds into a wall of overwhelming bass and reverberating synthpads paired with Dominique’s moodily delivered vocals, until the track comes to a halt. Drawing on classic gothic industrial music but keeping his approach modern and accessible, Verasect is taking darkwave to a whole new level.

[PREMIERE] FATE releases dark dystopian wave track, '2077'.

FATE is currently having a very busy year, with multiple releases under his belt including his debut EP Pathways earlier in the year as well as another EP, A Place Below which was released in July. The 22 year old electronic producer dropped a brand new track, ‘2077’, on The Playground today, and it’s his darkest and most aggressive yet. 

His music can best be described as emotionally driven, bass heavy and dark to its core. This new release ‘2077’ is no exception, as it paints a dystopian soundscape of a future overridden by crime and deep bass. You can hear lots of different sound effects used from pouring rain, bellowing thunder, creeping police sirens, bustling city streets and even the occasional ominous wind blowing through the streets of the track. ‘2077’ is a masterful work of creating a visual atmosphere by only using audio effects. 

One thing is clear, whether the future is the dystopian landscape imagined in ‘2077’ or not, either way, we’re glad FATE is here to provide the soundtrack.
