Premiere: Mad Zach – The Visitor
The fastest fingers in bass music belong to California native Mad Zach, who releases the lead single, “The Visitor,” out on the artist’s very own imprint, Mad Lab.
This eerie track could easily be the soundtrack to a universe where Stranger Things and Bladerunner have combined in the best way possible. It’s an acid journey through space-time to the rhythm of refined drums, bass, and foreboding synths. Mad Zach’s masterful union of so many intricate sonic layers in “The Visitor” is characteristic of his work — yet this track marks an evolution in the use of atmospheric sound design to set the mood.
Mad Zach has been quietly making waves in the bass music community of late, and 2018 primed to be a breakout year. His live performances are a sight to behold, as he’s often known add live elements via his Ableton Push MIDI controller — unleashing a flurry of rhythms and arpeggios with his fingers.
“The Visitor” is an exciting peek into the mind of a true beat wizard, that can only leave the listener in suspense.
