New Monstercat artist Karma Fields debuts audio-visual experience with ‘Build The Cities’
ZHU may have just been one-upped on his anonymity game by Monstercat‘s newest artist, Karma Fields. Last week, the computer-savvy producer “hacked” into Monstercat’s Twitch weekly podcast to give viewers an unsolicited preview of the music video for his first release. Although it seems to be a marketing ploy by the Vancouver record label, it’s an ingenious one at that. Furthermore, Karma Fields’ debut single, “Build The Cities,” is coupled with a complete 3D audio-visual experience straight out of a sci-fi movie.
The music video pulls viewers into an unexplored virtual world where glitchy blueprints warp and distort to the beat of the track. The conceptual video seems to add a layer of depth to the atypical music listening experience as Karma Fields strikes a flavorful balance between intense melodic progressions and gritty electro accents. This release stands out for Monstercat as they continue to push boundaries of how music can be consumed and we can only imagine what the masked artist has in store for the future.
