AYN concocts audio-visual experience for techno hell-raiser, ‘I Contact’ [Watch]
Two words spoken at the intro of AYN’s “I Contact” prove a defining addition to the track: “musical experience.” An apt declaration of what is to come, the verbal spoiler precedes several ensuing, spoken expansions of what streamers can expect to hear, as lulling vocals weave in and out of the sonic frame.
The spoken portion gives way to a bracing techno beat that elastically steals attention from any of the words that provided its precursor. Hauntingly ethereal, “I Contact’s” structure takes the underground’s frequent integration of spoken monologues and vocal overlays and glossily adapts them into a prelude for the agile beat. Influence from the Jordanian producer’s Arabic roots meanwhile threads “I Contact,” adding cultural inflection.
It’s stimulating, curiosity-inducing, a fresh new twist on familiar in the industrial setting. A nearly nine-minute project, “I Contact” comes with an immersive audio-visual video that augments the sheer affect of AYN’s latest.
