From the smooth yet heavy hitting percussion to the clean and precise vocal chops, So Sus' new song "Clutch" is definitely a future track that brings all the best elements of the genre together. Part of the CrystalsVolume 3 compilation, this track stands out tall and proud with amazing production and sound design put into every second of it. So Sus starts it all off with a lead up sounding almost ethereal, then slams into your ears with a hard bass line and perfect clap to match. It's a wonderful mix of heavy and soothing sounds, which can be very tough to accomplish, but So Sus nails it with this one.

SYNTHESIS: VOLUME 1After years of publishing our music/art discoveries on this blog, the community has shown us that true artistry has no boundaries. To start off our official 3rd year of MELTING OF AGE, we thought a compilation would be the best fitting. Compiled of artists we have admired over our time as a blog, SYNTHESIS: VOLUME 1 constructs, to what we hope, a cohesive album full of original pieces that best represents MOA. For this first comp, we collected a total of 13 artists from around the world to showcase their workmanship in production and songwriting. From heated house to experimental club music, we are excited to present SYNTHESIS: VOLUME 1 as the first edition to our new compilation series! Below share and listen to SYNTHESIS: VOLUME 1!
The first single released off of the new MOA compilation by Los Angeles based producer Omniboi, and New Jersey vocalist/producer Ehiorobo, is a wonderful combination of their two very unique styles in music. Omniboi’s jazzy production synchronizes perfectly with Ehiorobo’s R&b style vocals on "1 Slash Million." The track starts off with some attention grabbing vocals from Ehi paired with Omni’s unique production, leading into a lovely chorus that's so catchy it’ll be stuck in your head for days, then wraps up with a soft ending and heavy bassline. Every second of this tune is a showcase of both artists’ strong points in music, and it clearly shows. If this track is any indicator of how good the rest of the compilation is going to be, you’re all in for a real treat! Below share and listen to Ehiorobo and Omniboi's "1 Slash Million"!
