Kaizo Slumber: The Kaizo Manifesto

Acetantina‘s glitched-out footwork was pretty remarkable, but the producer has come into their own with this new album as Kaizo Slumber. Lush, flowing atmospheric rave melodies and pianos joined with ecstatic breaks, and some more aggressive banging kicks in all the right places. There’s a bit of a dystopian theme to this, making it seem a little harder than the usual neo-rave effort, but it’s still a hugely joyous release that isn’t making a grand attempt at sounding cool or trendy. There’s bits that sound a little like Scooter or the more aggressive side of ’90s action movie electronica or donk, but all folded into this specific aesthetic. It all feels like a massive spontaneous rave outside a nuclear reactor, except there’s only like 5 people there, but the music is so loud and so fast that the speakers appear 10 times bigger than they are.
