RUBAIYAT I is DADRAS's debut project on Connect
Native New Yorker DADRAS stealthily creeps around the local electronic music scene in a shadowy mystique. If you’re lucky enough to catch one of his sets, you can expect a mind-melting barrage of machine gun kicks, live percussion, and minimalist vocals, drowned in a thick molasses low-end. RUBAIYAT I, DADRAS’s debut release on Rioux’s Connect label, expands on this signature hybrid: a mutated and demented brew of electronic and hip hop music with washes of shoegaze textures. Sonic purity is eschewed for a raw, visceral production aesthetic, in which disorder is embraced; vocal drones are used to create a foundation for DADRAS’s minimal yet playful melodies. Atonality and whirring found noises screech atop DADRAS’s heavy poly-rhythmic drum structures, striking a balance between the extremes of chaos and structure, beauty and dissonance. RUBAIYAT I is the cold and dark first half of what will be a two-part series culminating later this year in it’s vibrant and dance-oriented counterpart.
