As Kin, electronic artist Yung Hui explores sound’s dark side through drones and bleak synths. What backing up these sounds much of the time are hip hop beats, believe it or not–but a verse over his tunes just doesn’t seem appropriate.
His latest album, Dormant, is being given away for free. Most of the tracks barely break the two-minute mark, and Hui himself admits to them being simple sketches.
But “Hercules,” a track dropped months after the release of Dormant, is a 6-minute monster. The grainy beat and low-end fog that surrounds this track make it extremely ominous. It’s pretty easy to get lost in, too. I just can’t shake this feeling of walking down a cave or falling down a bottomless pit.
