Thursday is going dark with Orange Drink and HDMX #drone #techno

Two sides of darkness from Orange Drink and HDMX in drone and techno.

Orange Drink offers the suitably entitled Sinister. This rolls ever so slowly into view, gradually building the dark tension. It’s accompanied by an explanation which says “I heard a noise outside. It was way too late for anyone to be walking around. I looked out the window into the pitch black and saw a blinding light. It took me a second to fully register what I was looking at. A car was on fire. The car was parked in between two other cars. Those cars did not have a scratch on them. This was done intentionally.” Guitars gradually chime but the emotional flatness remains. Even distorted subsonics can’t shift it.

HDMX’s Signal From The Sun (the White Shadow Remix) sounds almost perky after that. But it isn’t really. It’s a big techno tune flaunting an elastic bass and a crush of beats.  The air of tension runs through this as if through a stick of rock. Enjoy your day.
