[Audio] Happiness Cage’s ‘Image Crystal’

 

Happiness Cage

There’s a new tune from Happiness Cage, the more experimental alter-ego of Irish SynthWaver Ciarán Byrne A.K.A. Adeyhawke. We always eagerly await the next Adeyhawke tune, but in the meantime Happiness Cage serves up something a bit more cerebral, giving you something to think about while you’re resting your feet from dancing to Adeyhawke tunes. This latest one is called Image Crystal.

With patterns built on field recordings Ciarán made on his travels Image Crystal creates an organic soundscape peppered with lilting synths that drift through the sonic landscape. Calling to mind some of Autechre’s more emotive moments, Image Crystal is a beautiful and evocative four minute experience.

[Audio] Happiness Cage’s ‘UHF Blaze’

 

Happiness Cage

Happiness Cage is the new side-project from Irish SynthWaver Adeyhawke, who you may remember for hitting the highest point in out Top 20 tracks of 2014 for an instrumental, within the top ten. As this Happiness Cage alter-ego he’s about to release a new EP in the next couple of month, but is already previewing tracks on SoundCloud. Check out UHF Blaze below.

UHF Blaze is a beautiful cacophony, a chaotic collision of  Italo, 80s Dance, Electro-House, ChipTune, even Complextro (remember that?) that all comes together to form a compelling whole. Racing beats, spiky synth basslines, Industrial purcussion, and chirpy melodies all keep the energy relentlessly high; but the track never feels like it’s getting away from you. Seeped in nostalgia enough to feel comfortable amidst the juggernaut groove.
