The careful curation of clashing dynamics in music sparks the interest of audiophiles everywhere; one song glistens with beauty, but the next writhes in darkness. On this week’s Hot & New playlist, Audius’ latest releases showcase this fascinating contrast from the talents of some of the platform’s greatly talented underground artists!

Electronic music producer EASTGHOST boasts a vibrant discography that explores emotive and immersive atmospheres, all utilizing a wide selection of sounds; “At Long Last!,” comes from the wave and trap branch of  EASTGHOST’s abilities. The introduction feels more like an overture to a stadium concert until the lights dim and the track evolves into gritty bass grumbles and singing synths. Elements of trap blink throughout “At Long Last!,” underlining the melancholy yet content melody. EASTGHOST proudly presents “At Long last!,” as the first single from his upcoming Negative Spiral EP!

Indeed, “COKEHEAD” captures the angst, energy, and anger found in older genres of rock, but these young artists repackage it beautifully for the youth of today.

Asian-American producer Angrybaby shares his house hit, “BADDER,” on Audius. A four-on-the-floor beat supports a harmony of pulsing lasers as well as a vocal sample in different pitches. “BADDER” infuses listeners and dancefloors with a nonchalant confidence, encouraging people to evolve into the best version of themselves. Although a confidence tune, Angrybaby approaches this mood a bit conventionally, using subtlety, careful composition, and gently shimmering synths to create an almost romantic air. Indeed, “BADDER” influences listeners to grow into the baddest version of themselves, perhaps by capitalizing on the self-love everyone is capable of.
