Nightcores on Edm street
Shitecore, more like!
"Most nightcore artists traffic in distorted edits of tracks—mostly Top 40, J-pop, and K-pop—sped up to 160+ BPM, with vocals so cartoonishly high-pitched they could easily come from a starry-eyed anime idol"
"a healthy dose of parodic absurdity", zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
this one is at least overloaded and diabetic-coma-y -
"a frenetic cacophony of jittering vocals and accelerating rhythms that spiral into shimmering, fragmented chaos"
but really, isn't it just Rustie x PC Music = hearditbefore?
with some glitchcore, and The Speedfreak, thrown in?
quite enjoyable in its way, but leaves you with a sinking feeling: will we never leave - get past, go further than - the Nineties?
adding to that sense of terminal entropy, ever decreasing (re)cycles.... c.f. 'wave' a couple years ago
