FTRK #38 = "Eastbound Soul Train" by Zunk
Eastbound Soul Train (Subsnuggritmix) by Zunk (2009)
(Download available in Soundcloud player.)
Eastbound Train is a wicked rhythmic IDM mix. Its mix of trance-styled vocals and its ecclectic variety of samples sets the sound in a Twilight Zone between two genres. The track opens with deep mute bass and skittish distortion before settling into some sort of ritual of curiousities. Several highlights appear throughout the song, refreshing the melody with armadic waves before splitting out haywire in its conclusion with plucky synth.
You can check out the original track on Zunk's Bandcamp Site, from the album Ameliorated. Free and highly recommended.
