In the recent surge of summery tunes lathered in seasonal lust and SPF 60, it's understandable that we will audibly crave the polar opposite. Yes, it is summer and it is appropriate to pull out the tropical house chilled-out playlists. But let's be real, there is only so much tropical house to listen to, until it all starts to sound the same. To refresh that perky palette of yours, EARMILK is presenting to you a track straight out of the underworld. Today we premiere Ethan Glass' "Hail Satan"; an absurdly beautiful sonic collage of cryptic sounds and compositions.
Hailing from Virginia, Ethan Glass has an incredible skills and peculiar tastes. His raw approach to production constructs a deep and imaginative playground of sound for audiophiles. "Ragnaros" released over a year ago off Saturate Records. The track is a whirlwind of cacophonic synth-work seamlessly sewn together to create a striking track. Ethan Glass' most recent work "Flood Walrus", is a contemporary banger, citing hip hop influence through samples. The trap inspired beat is a contemporary work that optimizes space and obscurities in sound curation.

"Hail Satan" begins with a shrill synth that descends into a garage-like drum segment. Combining analog noise with laser induced sounds, Glass creates a sinister and dark atmosphere, ironically pleasing the ears with his creativity. The track paints an imaginative scenario, picture aliens starting a basement grunge band. "Hail Satan" is an excellent construction of the producer's signature style, citing Ethan Glass' flexibility in design and innovation.
