the patient 06:31
Ds3(2860)¯ 06:21
melatonin 04:53


motion sensor debuts with this 3-cut EP, adding a last-minute bonus cut as a lovely expansion, completing a hazy and hallucinatory vibe... each brooding track is intensely fueled with emotive synth work... expansive dynamics are captured in a singular episode, smeared behind a lens of noise and dust... angular beats remain forceful in the background, foundational support under immense but delicate fragments of melody... each set of hypnotic themes intertwines in retrograde around its elusive resolution...

the patient is a solemn tribute to acceptance, perhaps in waiting for a healing change that may never arrive

Ds3(2860)¯ meditates on a double-edged sword, both futurist and humanist

melatonin is a self-induced dream state... an escape from sensory assault through trying to stop trying

valerian grinds forward with purpose... a mantra for connecting to ancient wisdom while evolving through modern life
