It's appropriate we're premiering the new one from Chris Johannesen today, since we just unveiled the winners of The Untz Challenge yesterday. For those of you who follow our doings closely, you'll remember that Spundose took home the Staff Pick last year after entering the contest four years in a row, and was able to parlay that victory into performing at a half dozen major festivals last summer.
Continuing where he left off on his studio efforts, Johannesen on April 11th completes his trilogy of EP's with the release of World That We Order, which follows Tones That We Broadcast and Matrix That We Shake. While much of this new EP covers global glitch and psy hop that Spundose fans have grown accustomed to, I chose to pick a real dark, bassy banger from deep in the EP to showcase, just because I like to show off Chris' gloomy side.
“Arcturian” is a brooding, wildly wobbling track with a real sinister sound. It obviously showcases Johannesen's production chops, which really are up there in terms of finesse and composition, but I just see a lot of producers from a wide swath of worlds glomming onto this one, because it's just gonna melt a dance floor. I've seen it happen.
Make sure to keep an eye on Spundose—this guy is one of our favorites out there consistently releasing top-notch psychedelic bass. We recommend taking a trip down memory lane and assembling the full trilogy for back-to-back-to-back listening pleasure on the 11th.
