I owe a huge amount to Austin, Texas label Gravitas Recordings. I don’t think I can count on one hand all the incredible artists that I’ve found because of Gravitas. The label is constantly pushing forward progressive and challenging releases from a diverse group of producers and musicians. Not only have I seen releases through Gravitas from some of my favorites- including Zebbler Encanti Experience, D.V.S* and ill-esha– but the label has also introduced me to plenty of new producers who are making just as much noise as those aforementioned.
One of these is Canadian producer Perkulat0r. Admittedly, while I’ve seen this name float around for some time now, it’s taken me until now to give him the full attention of my ears. As happens more often than I’d like to admit, I found myself quickly kicking myself in the head for not giving this guy a listen before. The new Transcension album lands itself somewhere between dance music and that low-bass minimalist IDM sound that lends itself to pleasant background noise for any activity. The whole album is downtempo, ranging from trap and hip-hop inspired beats, to more rhythmic and glossy tunes driven by synthesizers. There’s a lot of glitch and breakbeat influence here, but applied through calculated precision. As always from Gravitas, the whole album is yours at the “name your price” option, allowing a FREE download or open donation.
