“Straight off his freshest release, Ancient Desert, Pericles invites bass lovers on a journey in “Rise of the Jellyfish.” This track can best be described as a hybrid that bridges the gap between glitch-hop and dubstep, resulting in a sound that fits into Pericles’ crunked up style, but remains subtle in its nature. As a piece of Ancient Desert’s “mosaic storyboard” described by the artist himself, “Rise of the Jellyfish” serves as a danceable track that features unorthodox sound effects, melodious synth lines, and ever-present bass that keeps listeners on their feet.”
Tic, tic, tick. The new Pericles album drops at midnight and I feel like we’ve been waiting for ages! Check out this teaser tune, and pick up the whole album when it releases on BeatPort tomorrow!
Hollow futuristic landscapes of sterile sands; long dusted travels between scattered pockets of rare tribes and sun battered outposts; ancient meccas of mechanized populations, wired for collectivity; This is the world borne to Pericles’ new release, Ancient Desert, a lushly atmosphered realm, with bass clouds and sparkling synth storms raining down.
“Crank up the volume for this Lost in Sound exclusive mix from the Charleston, SC producer PERICLES. Heavy hitting from the start and full of dance party energy, this mix is for the arm swinging two-steppers. PERICLES intertwines squishy, futuristic dubstep and crunk with outer space vibes and a touch of gangster status bedouin life. The concoction leads me to believe the samples were recorded in the midst of a gun fight on the planet Tatooine.”
