- Words: Jesse Sussman
Big hip-hop drums and bleepy, chip-tune synths coat the bleak world created by SoCal native Egadz (a.k.a. Erik Nava) on "Ghost," a track pulled from his forthcoming Satellites LP. The production sees Nava aggressively (and carefully) filling in the entire frequency spectrum with a load of glitched-out synthetic elements, and just after the drums temporarily drop out at the one-minute mark, a potent, apocalyptic synth immediately shifts the track from a merely ominous vibe to an outrightly menacing one. Egadz gradually transforms his tune into an anthem which explores the possibilities a producer can uncover with little more than his imagination and a computer.
