Mr. Bill and Esseks have teamed up to release a brand new EP, DeadLanguage, and the results do not disappoint.
Coming off the release of his album two months ago, experimental underground legend Bill Day takes a step out of his usual comfort zone as does Sam Eckstein to amalgamate their two sounds into a perfect 4-track EP.
Spanning multiple genres, they all have an incredibly mix of Esseks’ heaviness and rhythm and Mr. Bill’s distinctively abstract production style. Whether it’s the glitch hop on “Boop” and “Beat With Bill,” the dubbed out track “Roughhousin’” or drumstep banger “Censored,” the heavy-techy-neuro beats are relentless and you will enjoy every second of it.
The EP is out now on Ganja White Night’s Subcarbon Records, and as with every release on that label, these two artists are granted the EBO treatment, which in this case features a hybrid mash-up character of these two guys' beloved cartoon avatars running and jumping around brain goo.
