Following the release of his album, Pulse, last year, Abelation's name has been on everyone's lips in the underground bass community. Young Reese Downes has found himself a crew with the Lost Dogz set, but reps his wholly unique brand of low end sorcery.
At the end of this week, Downes unleashes, Catharsis, his all new EP for Minnesota's Outer Realms label. It's sonically removed from his Lost Dogz bretheren, as well as his own previous body of work. Abelation is already onto new frontiers.
Today we premiere the darkly brooding “Murked.” Moody synths bookend this master class in sound design. The middle chunk is a swirling pit of subsonic serpents, hissing, growling (fuck yeah, snakes can growl), and writhing across stuttering percussion.
Catharsis is out April 26th on Outer Realms, and Angelinos can catch him at Bassrush May 3rd at 1720 with CharlestheFirst as part of the Ascent Tour.
