Song of the Day: “Facsimile” by Zetroc

Zetroc (Louisiana) released his Atrophy EP (as a free download) January 15th through his bandcamp page. [via rappamelo]

Atrophy is somewhat of a running joke I had with myself about this record (sorry it took so long) and the title also serves as a testament to what i’ve learned and applied as a producer and individual. At the time I started working on this I had a limited amount of resources to create, However I felt that these compositions were born out of necessity rather than the luxury of having various tools at my reach. With every sound you may hear in this music; Every single one was a learning process. Which often times left me with mixed feelings of excitement and resentment towards this learning curve and the project in general. In “Atrophy”, I wrote about experiences of mine within a particular six year period of my life. From losing my mother, to Deconstructing hopelessness, and finding love in someone who mirrors the worst parts of you as a person…and resenting them for it. Atrophy is my reaction to what could happen if I were to not use my creativity and expression as a means to actually feel alive. No matter how challenging or foreign the process may be, The most frightening thing is always is not knowing what could have happened.
