Spundose - Relatives (new Street Ritual release)

Spundose is one of those rare tribal bass and glitch artists who maintains a downtempo vibe that balances between ancient and future sounds without devolving into a mush of dubstep wobble. So many times, these "psychedelic" bass albums are really just percussion layers with haphazard dubstep  sounds that evoke drunk aliens crashing into each other on some inter-dimensional highway.

"Relatives" - the new album from Spundose - breaks that mold. It flows more akin to experimental hip hop if ancient Mayan ancestors got high on peyote and pre-dated J Dilla. The album is a simple and refreshing downtempo experience of deep psychedelic bass, occasional glitch elements, and wavy electronic melodies that take you to another plane of consciousness.
