INYAN - Sun
The very first track gives us the introduction of a squealing sound that is slowly joined by the deep kick as it is joined by the rest of the percussion. It's hard to explain what this sound is, but you will either love it or you'll hate it, I just so happen to fall into the first camp. As the rhythm beats on, we get further strange sounds as short whistling loop that pops up and then subsequently disappears as well as a short piano line that behaves the same way, along with INYAN's soft whispers. These thematic elements show up in virtually all other tracks to differing effect, notably as well on the fourth track "Rain." The rhythm here seems to shift from a breakbeat inspiration to something perhaps driven a bit more by modern trap complete with the snare rolls all. But all that elemental strangeness is still there, complete with an inconsistent sample of rain and short broken little melodic loops. INYAN's penchant for bringing a sound in and then dropping it without warning is what defines and really sets this album apart. It makes for a rather fun ride.
