Kin- "Hercules"

New MusicadminComment

As Kin, electronic artist Yung Hui explores sound's dark side through drones and bleak synths. What backing up these sounds much of the time are hip hop beats, believe it or not--but a verse over his tunes just doesn't seem appropriate.

His latest album, Dormant, is being given away for free. Most of the tracks barely break the two-minute mark, and Hui himself admits to them being simple sketches.

But "Hercules," a track dropped months after the release of Dormant, is a 6-minute monster. The grainy beat and low-end fog that surrounds this track make it extremely ominous. It's pretty easy to get lost in, too. I just can't shake this feeling of walking down a cave or falling down a bottomless pit.
