Hebinomichi, meaning 'serpents path', is a newly formed artist collective and label founded by Denver based producer StéLouse and Detroit's future beat newcomer, ahh-ooh. Not only that, but these guys were gracious enough to share their new single with me for an exclusive premiere on EARMILK. It's not the first time, but this one's a big one. The track is titled "Sex Panther", and serves as a debut release for the newly concocted music collective. It's a cross between dubstep like rhythms and calming rock synths. We even get a sort glimpse of some breakbeat notions.
I'm more than happy to see the boys are focused on building a complete sensory unification by bringing together music and art on every project. For this month's string of releases they are working exclusively with Alfred English, a digital artist who has been doing a handful of art for Mad Decent recently. I love the nergy in the new track, and the vibe behind it is memorable. Good music is enough, but the newly introduced producer ahh-ooh explains:
Hebinimichi are going to be bringing on "resident" artists for designated periods of time to handle all of the artwork for our releases while they are on deck. The idea is that the artists will already be established in the art world and capable of cranking things out fairly quick. In return for providing us with art for the singles and compilations we will give them an outlet to showcase and sell their art via the crew. -AO
Take a spritz of "Sex Panther" now, and stay classy dudes.
