Video Premiere: Memory9 "The Abyss Within"
- Words: Brad Stabler
Memory9, in collaboration with digital visual artists Saizen Media, claims that his new video is a "zero budget" project, an especially striking statement considering how the piece looks exceptionally high-end. Apparently, the video was sparked by a "mutual love for futuristic aesthetics and cinematic atmospheres," and the tune that accompanies it is a perfect match. "The Abyss Within" takes its time to wind up, building on bubbling, low-swinging synths and stark whirls of percussion before igniting into a stuttering, confident slice of futuristic beat work. Similarly, the clip follows suit, showing all the cogs in its machine flicker on one by one before going into an impressive alien light show. "Into the Abyss" is taken from Memory9's forthcoming EP of the same name, which is set to drop on May 20 via Mnemonic Dojo.
