Mat Ranson, well-known for his work under his Fisk Industries moniker, diverges from his usual dubbed-out hip-hop styled productions for a slow, synth-heavy techno-meets-dubstep sound as Kwaidan, his one-off project stimulated by watching a movie of the same name by Masaki Kobayashi. In this slowly evolving exclusive excerpt from Masaki, hard-hitting drum programming coupled with a cavernous, multi-faceted low-end lays the groundwork for profoundly eerie, shrieking effects and spacey, dithering synths. The track is saturated with ethereal, textured sounds that create a paranormal sense akin to Kobayashi’s original ghost stories.
