Premiere: Monstergetdown – Blakmajik
LA remains a hotbed of fresh, forward-thinking American talent, and mau5trap has tapped keenly into this vein. One of their newest recruits from this region, Monstergetdown, has just released a fresh new EP that embraces elements spanning from tribal, to dark and heavy.
Its eponymous opener, “Blakmajik,” brings to mind imagery of voodoo and mysticism as it traverses through interweaving rhythms made with tribal percussion, and a simple that hits the ears in satisfying places. Soon, however, he subtly layers in even more exotic elements, making for quite the intriguing listen. “Blakmajik” was certainly made for the outdoor, off-grid setting, and we’re looking forward to hearing it rinsed through festival sets throughout the season.
“Blakmajik” is available for download beginning May 4. Order a copy here
