Zoolbab an electronic act out of Seattle that just released his latest EP entitled “Acropolis.” It is a beat-heavy electronic album that has similar textures to bands like Oneohtrix Point Never but has a hip-hop style of drums reminiscent of a band like Prefuse 73. There are occasional vocals that are wrapped in reverbs with a long delay. The album seems to be intended for headphones as there is a surplus of glitches, beeps and blips that can keep you occupied.
The first song entitled “Slow Deep” is the standout for me. It starts with a synth that phases in and out backed by a deep bass drum. Other percussive elements are scattered as well in what sounds like various cut-samples of vocals. The variety of sounds are fun to indulge in. While not groundbreaking, fans of IDM, glitch and electronic will most likely appreciate what this album offers.
