LateNightBeatFeast – ‘Hallucinate Intelligence’ EP

An atmospheric, instrumental electronic invigoration arises via the Hallucinate Intelligence EP, the latest release from LateNightBeatFeast, a project based in Cambridge, UK. Following up Intelligent Hallucinations, released earlier this year, the EP furthers a futuristic tint in its atmospheirc sound and thematic inspirations, with the project noting: “The titles refers to conversations about A.I., which has also formed an influence for the videos.”

Among the album’s many highlights, “Ambivalence” stands especially strong. An atmospheric introduction stirs with bird-chirping gentleness, orchestral hints, and a clockwork-like percussive subtlety. The hypnotic bass and undercurrent of strings flourishing make for a haunting, cinematic intrigue. The percussive elements subside around the three-minute mark, as the textural blissfulness envelops and resembles a refreshing spring day, before blaring guitar work enthralls shortly thereafter. “Ambivalence” is a riveting display of the project’s knack for compelling, atmospheric productions.

“Six Voices” is another standout, meshing ghostly synth pads alongside nostalgic synth throbbing and pulsating percussion. The title track closes the EP with further impact, impressing across both its initial bustle and more spacious intrigue at mid-point; the dynamic tonal range and consistently impressive soundscapes show well throughout the entirety of the Hallucinate Intelligence EP.

“Ambivalence” and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
