Transforming kaleidoscopic inner experiences into works of musical art, LA IDM artist, zenxienz, is back with his second EP of the year entitled, ‘Brainforest’. Kicking off the 14-track EP with “Insignia”, the creative mastermind dabbles into an instrumental fusion of sound stemming from multiple genres including Jungle, Dubstep, Experimental and Jazz while sending listeners into a soothing and colorful mind-trip into the hallways of their own minds. The second track, “Undercurrents”, flows into an enigmatic musical mystery that influences lacing a modern vision with ancestral roots. Cleverly titled, the third track, “In Descent”, is an evolution into higher realms and otherworldly thoughts that surge past life in 3D and land deep in the midst of exploration of the fifth dimension.
Taking the road less traveled into the fifth track, “Trapazoid Dream”, the track feels like the ingestion of a powerful hallucinogen indenting stars into a human beings ensorcelled esoteric reservoirs. Floating in a vast sea of oneness while breathing life and internally plunging deeper into the abyss of nothingness, zenxienz showcases the extensiveness of his musical talent throughout the seventh track, “Cyber Ants”, that waxes and wanes through dark and light in a manner that is infectious for the listener.
The tenth track, “Coiled”, takes the EP on a spin into murky inner lands beyond the dust of the tangible. “Missing California” is the twelfth track that serves as an instrumental and sentimental ode to the Golden State and state of mind that comes from being amongst an atmosphere of boundless creativity, lush nature, and good vibes. Closing out the EP with “Gyroscope”, zenxienz finds clarity with the fusion of inner and outer sources and lets his light shine as listeners muse upon the EP that is shrouded in mystery.
It is evident that zenxienz has already matured as a musician and human being since the recent release of his last EP. Stay on your toes and keep an eye out for zenxienz on major EDM festival lineups over the years to come.
