Honeycomb is bringing a whole new world of musical prowess and theoretical understanding to electronic music. His new Reality EP melds futuristic production techniques flawlessly with classical compositions, utilizing minimal progressions and meticulous harmonies. Opening with a tactical trap beat rolling beneath an atmospheric wave of audio, the EP slowly steps further and further into musical expansion. The second track, “Free & Independent”, follows the template of the former, but breaks its percussion into glitch-inspired fragments. With “Beauty”, Honeycomb really begins to unfold the stylistic box encasing the EP’s opening two tracks. Introducing a riveting guitar line, the track steps away from the thick hip hop sound felt on the first half of the release. With the final piece, “Throatsinging”, the EP sinks into its deepest moments of experimental territory. Implementing actual samples of throat singing, the track relies only on a single chopping drum hit. Encased in ever-evolving audio ambiance, the tune brings a peaceful and thoughtful end to the overall stunning release.
As an added bonus, a recent set was caught at The Waterfront Tavern in Holyoke, Massachusetts, which you can stream and grab as a FREE download below!
