Eclectic producer/emcee Karras kicks off the month with two releases in the form of “Strange Towers” and “Strange Towers (New Skins Mix)”. The track is a potpourri of off-kilter sounds and stream-of-consciousness raps.
“Strange Towers” is built on a harsh and sizzling synth-bass and dark moody arpeggios that are layered by punchy drums. Karras takes us in a journey of the mind with his unorthodox views on religion, ego and being self-aware. This is not for the faint-hearted so keep an open mind when tuning in.
The “Strange Towers (New Skins Mix)” takes it up a notch with the dynamic and ultra-experimental approach. The sparse but punchy drums are tied with ominous synths, woozy basslines and short obscure vocal samples and thick textures that permeate the track from start to finish.
