I’m always excited when I find something that’s not trying to follow the status quo…an artist that’s willing to tread their own way. You typically find this in well established artists, especially those that laid down the groundwork for the genre at hand. It’s not as frequent that you find it in an artist that’s working on their debut, but that’s the case with Altvater. His Soundcloud stream is filled with tracks that blend a dark trip hop sensibility with a futuristic tilt. There’s a retro feel here but it’s not necessarily rooted in the 80’s…it’s really hard to put a finger on it (which I quite like). Regardless of where the roots lie or the origins of the inspiration behind the music, if I’m having a hard time pigeonholing a sound then I’m pretty excited! Give Altvater a listen and see what you think:
