TRACK PREMIERE: ELOS “DATA WEST SUITE”
L.A. producer ELOS last visited L.A. RECORD with an album full of musically mutated video game themes and now he’s back with a new track from a new album about a society betrayed by bit rot. The “Data West Suite” (the opposite of Data East?) is a complicated digital journey through a complicated digital subject. Says ELOS: “Data West soundtracks a digital world forgotten due to obsolescence. Its denizens were promised a new world of eternal youth, infinite knowledge, customizable avatars, and farming jobs in an environment that felt like home. They were instead fed to the algorithm. What happens to the human brain after 200 years of data degradation?” ELOS’ Data West is out Fri., Oct. 20, on Dome of Doom.
