Distorted basslines and twisted melody embody the vibe of Cryptex’s new “Isolated Incidents” EP, due out October 11th on Gravitas Recording. Los Angeles resident Tyler Chase, better known through his midtempo bass driven project Cryptex, is hastily achieving notoriety within the scene through his popular re-glitches of artists such The Glitch Mob, Justice, Daft Punk and more. His debut EP seeks to solidify him among the names of notable glitch hoppers today.
Upon first listen, the seven track EP pulls you into a vortex of mangled, beefy beats. Lasers shoot from unknown sources, striking synapses as bent bleeps scatter across booming low end. Half dancefloor crush and half headphone recline, Isolated Incidents will not leave you wanting. Big reese stabs and hip hop rhythms show a range of divergent influences, culminating perfectly throughout the release.
The accompanying free download, aptly titled “The Glitch Anthem”, displays Crptex’s masterful mashup finesse, effortlessly cutting between Skrillex, Drake, The Glitch Mob and Kraddy, all the while sprinkled with original Cryptex harmonic work.
