Today, vaporwave producer and vocalist, Eccodroid releases Hologram Hex, a four-track album on 3” CDR format from Pacific Plaza Records. The release features a rainy and cool vaporwave vibe with original lyrics and vocals, a signature of Eccodroid’s style.
Hologram Hex opens with a A Thousand Missing Calls, a moody electronic piece augmented with thunder & rain samples where Ecco delivers an almost disaffected vocal reminiscent of Damon Albarn’s dead-eyed drawl. Fading carries the theme forward with a slow jam with a gentle bass line and ambient backings, topped with a reverb drenched vocal that drifts in an out of the spotlight. The third selection, Low Def, is built on a driving beat and a looping synth pattern, while the title track, Hologram Hex, closes out with groovy bass, some panned accents, and a nice buzzing synth solo after the first chorus. Other unidentified sounds tumble in and out of the mix like a ghostly bowling alley.
Overall, this release is a natural step in Eccodroid’s evolution, introducing new elements and techniques that play well into this thematic work, and presented in an artistic, collectible fashion with Pacific Plaza sensibilities.
