After much anticipation from recent releases “Run” and “Til Dawn,” Australian artist ShockOne has released his new thirteen-track album “A Dark Machine.” Breathtakingly complex, hauntingly poignant and sonically masterful, the album explores a concept few people dare to truly dive into – confronting the darkest parts of ourselves and realizing that our power as humans makes us capable of both great and terrible things. As the album progresses through both psychological stages – from awakening to self-destruction, hopelessness to self-acceptance, ShockOne creates more than just a sonic joyride.
“A Dark Machine” is an immersive experience that delves into the complex human psyche while running the gamut of bass music genres with an experimental flair. The album features guest collaborations with ShockOne’s real-life sister, vocalist Reija Lee, as well as Cecil, Cruz Patterson, The Bloody Beetroots and producers Ekko and Sidetrack, who each contribute their unique sound to the whole. No matter what stage of the journey you’re on, you are bound to discover something new and mind-blowing on this album. Make sure that you check it out below!
