The lush and seductive “The Hypnosis Detox: Chapter Four” mixes spoken-word with tranquil synths and keyboards. Los Angeles-based Avi Jay D shows both his poetic and atmospheric prowess throughout this effort, an entry in his “The Hypnosis Detox” series. “I wanted to try something very experimental to pay homage to my science background,” he says. “This project is truly different and almost an entirely new genre.” Avi Jay D certainly succeeds in being idiosyncratic, pushing forth a heavily atmospheric and spoken-word-heavy success that does just as the title implies: hypnotize listeners into a deep, subdued bliss.
“The Hypnosis Detox: Chapter Four” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2018’ Spotify playlist.
