Via Gramatik’s artist label Lowtemp, DJ / Producer Common Creation reveals a psychedelic bass EP titled ‘Manufactured Moments.’ Featuring JT Ward on the drums, the EP aims to recreate the live instrumentation and emotional evocation of a jam band over the course of four brand new singles.
On ‘Manufactured Moments’ cut “Candlelight,” we hear Common Creation, delve into a slow-building exploration of experimental dubstep, funk, electro-soul, and organic instrumentation. Complex soundscapes – created via samples, rich synth, heavy drops, vocal chops, and traditional instrumentation such as guitar and drum kit- are a common thread throughout the project. From the melodic and hypnotizing stunner “Late Night Summer” (Common Creation’s personal favorite from the project) to the fluid glitch-hop number “Conflicted Computer,” ‘Manufactured Moments’ achieves Common Creations mission to bridge the gap between “the late 60’s era of protest rock and modern day festival culture:”
One of the main inspirations I had when creating it was the parallels I see between the late 60’s era of protest rock and modern day festival culture — people coming together over music and peace in spite of a volatile political climate. With that in mind, I ended up with four tracks that I felt perfectly captured the vibe of a counter-culture era psych-rock concert reimagined in the context of a modern dubstep performance. -Common Creation
