Shadient issues two-track release ‘Crash / Roadworks’ ahead of debut album
Shadient has shared the last two singles ahead of his forthcoming debut album with the double release of “Crash” featuring fknsyd and Catnapp and “Roadworks,” which follow his genre-defying tracks “Ego Insaniac” and “Dancing Alone Again,” released in July and August, respectively. Speaking on “Roadworks,” which notably features his own vocals, Shadient said,
“Something really important about this song, I wrote the lyrics as a really stupid hopeless poem while I was on tour in 2019, I was having the time of my life but the chaos of it all definitely got to me at times. plus being just an opener vs the effort it took to get there.”
“Crash” and “Roadworks” bridge Shadient’s flair of evenly distributed aggressive and emotional tones as the two singles intermesh both genres of dark industrial bass and liquid drum ‘n’ bass. Accompanying the tracks is a lyric video, created by the 23 year-old producer himself, that aims to visually and sonically illustrate the dichotomy between dark and light. Listen to “Crash” and “Roadworks” below as the lead up to Have You No Burden, set to release on SLANDER & NGHTMRE‘s Gud Vibrations imprint this fall, ticks down.
