Favorite ThisSingularity - Breathe

Paraphrasing and simplifying the computer wizard and information age philosopher Ray Kurzweil, the human race is rapidly approaching a technological event horizon wherein superhuman, artificially-intelligent machines will be created that eclipse puny Homo sapien brains and will throw our tenuous grip on society way off kilter. LA-based producer Singularity, who takes his name from this dystopian prediction of our civilization's tipping point, has devised an elegant solution: he has become one with the machine. On the 20-year-old producer's brand new EP, Breathe, available today on for FREE download, Singularity attacks four different genres--moombahton, glitch-hop, dubstep, and electro--each encompassing his synthetic sonic signature to the point where it sounds as if he's crawled inside of his laptop to assemble these tunes. If you were forced to craft an over-elaborate analogy to describe his melodic aesthetic, you might say it sounds like Paul McCartney covering Maroon 5 with a theremin. The absolutely devastating hooks lodge themselves like porcupine barbs deep into your flesh and don't let go. The warbling strains weave in and out of pounding drums. It comes as no surprise that the bass prodigy actually got his training in drumline. Fans have been chomping at the bit for this 4-track EP, and its variety is only surpassed by its precision. Enjoy the music before Skynet sends its robotic assassins to wipe you out.
