Nanoray: Digimaiden

Nanoray’s discography of neon-streaked ravecore releases has been rapidly expanding the past few years, and Digimaiden is possibly their most exciting album yet. Neither sticking to breakbeats or 4/4 kicks, the tracks are inevitably reminiscent of classic rave but more accurately recall ’00s U.K. hardcore and donk (!), yet with more twisted time signatures and breakcore edits. Some moments are sparkly enough to soundtrack some sort of Christmas-themed cartoon (“Myztic Stage 🜂 Frost & Fire”), yet others have a strangely mystical aura to them (“Inner ⊛ Core”). It’s all massively fun and well produced, and the brief track at the end makes it seem like the journey is far from over.
