“Spectral Chop” is taken from the new album “Fragmenta” by New York-based producer Erin Rioux. The sound design of this track is not to be taken lightly – the track moves with violent warping and snapping, but has a thick atmosphere of mistiness where Rioux’s vocals are submerged.

Electronic glitches and drones are ever-present, with a broken piano performance underlying the song and providing an emotional weight. Rioux presents work with as much detail in his songwriting as in his sound design, making him an exciting young talent to hear.
