Check out Mangadrive!
Last year sometime, I received an email saying that an artist named Mangadrive was following me on Twitter. I made a mental note to check the music out later. A few months later I finally got the chance to check out his album These.Blades.Will.Never.Rust and really liked it. I loved the song Leviathan in particular because I had never heard anything where the synths were so intricate and so quick.
He released a new album called Artifice and I loved that as well. This song is one of my favorites.
I hadn’t heard the albums that came between the two, so the whole album was a huge musical jump for me. Through the last 6 months or so, I have gotten the rest of his albums and I love them all. One day I want to sit down and listen to all of his albums in order. I think that would be pretty interesting to hear.
This artist completely blows me away. He has introduced me to a completely new side of electronic music. I’m kind of a newbie when it comes to the electronic genre in general, so it was really cool to hear something completely new to me. What I like about Mangadrive Is the fact that his music is a lot different than what I’m accustomed to. His music completely fascinates me. It’s so technical that I can’t help but constantly wonder “how does he do that?”
One of my favorite tracks: Reborn.And.Rewired
One thing I really like about Mangadrive is that he encompasses so many different genres. I admit, I suck at classifying music, but I have Mangadrive to thank for opening my eyes to the genres of 303 and psytrance. I am looking forward to checking out more music from those genres in the future. I’m also looking forward to hearing more of his music.
So if you’re into darker electronic music, I HIGHLY recommend checking out Mangadrive!
