Subterranean Wavelength: The Key Players In Joburg’s Beat Scene + Mixtape Premiere
A look at the key players in Joburg's beat scene (Escapism Refuge, Hlasko, Hawkword, Micr.pluto, The Watermark High) + Subterranean Wavelength premiere.
Escapism Refuge’s dreamy galactic bass ballads have an atmospheric luminescence about them. Their distilled liquid basslines dripping with crisp mid-tempo kicks and laser bright synthesizers interlock to form decadent metaphysical dance music ideal for tantric sex with alien life-forms. The sheer depth and elemental vastness of his melodic sequences is supernatural. His explorative cache of references and outstanding knack for arrangement and composition make him a one-of-a-kind specimen in his league. At barely 20 years old, he’s already a formidable global contender for the Rookie MVP of the beat game. We are salivating with anticipation for what’s to come from this dynamic young virtuoso.
