The tightrope you walk when experimenting with sounds that are not commonly heard together is a thin one. The ultimate aim should be to bring out a specific emotion or to evoke narrative, but it can quickly devolve into meaningless sound when the intention is muddled. Kauzmeat makes music like he's performing the most amazing highwire act the world has ever seen. While you could broadly categorize his work as ambient and vaporwave, it's his affinity for dissonance and moving atmospheres that makes his brand of art so compelling.
Already on an amazing run of albums with just over a year of producing under the Kauzmeat name, Inverse makes for another impressive cornerstone in his catalogue. This 36 minute journey is one that flows effortlessly from idea to idea and texture to texture. It's as melancholic as it is energetic, always busy and always evolving, with a bevy of likeminded producers helping to make each movement distinct while adding to the overall image this EP conjures. Inverse feels like a dedication to contemplative, rainy nights.

Recorded and mastered in Chartier's Memory during Spring 2020.

listening to this album while grinding gold on runescape is prof obably the most relaxing thing i have ever experienced. the ambience gives a vibe of walking around varrock with an inventory full of loot ready to trade and sell at the grand exchange. 7deku
nostalgia is at the forefront of this record. the undying love of a world that sucked in kids new and old yet made into something new by said kids. the laid back drum machines paired with the ever lovely zelda samples make for an experience that let's you let go and be a child. let's you relive a time where things were better. where you explored the wonderful pixels of a masterpiece Gibby
A seminal release in the realm of vaporwave that is equal parts death and rebirth. Your digital demise is accompanied by slow reverberations, reflecting the shimmering nature of this fractal world. As your code reaches total dissemination, you’re then reborn in a sea of pink binary waves. fervent_enigma
