It took Danger 10 years to launch his debut album, but it surely appears now that dam is damaged and we’re getting extra of him than we’ve ever dreamed. Two years after releasing his album Taiko, Danger is again with Origins, revisiting his roots.
If the album sounds nostalgic, that’s by design. Many of the tracks are unreleased from again in his MySpace-era days — followers will little question discover “88:88 Stage 3” within the tracklist, a comply with as much as the observe “88:88” from his 2009 EP 09/16 2007. And even past that, separate from Taiko, the brand new album appears to be much less about making a world throughout the music and extra about evoking recollections from the previous. One would possibly say, a less complicated time…
Longtime followers of Danger are going to like this album, as he brings again so most of the soundscapes, melodies, and buildings that made him an underground phenom from 2007 to 2014. New followers are certain to like this album as properly, as nobody else is absolutely pushing this sound; and in an ecosystem of regurgitated and repeated sounds, any new expertise goes to be lauded.
Of Origins, Danger says,
“ORIGINS has become a vehicle for me to tackle keeping my past-self from haunting me or let my present-self become tethered down in nostalgia. I’ve struggled lately searching for my inner-child. I thought he had disappeared, then I’d thought I wouldn’t need him anymore, then I came to realize that living without him left me incomplete. When recently visiting my parents home, being in my dusty childhood room, I realized I had been missing that child who still reveled in the retro land of VHS tapes and 8-bit gaming. He needed to have voice in my current art. ORIGINS was born out of this struggle and it was an album that needed to happen. It’s important to never forget that the most fragile part of yourself can also be your biggest strength. In many ways this album represents where I’ve come from, more-importantly it informs where I’m going.”
The album is solely instrumental and resembles online game background music for probably the most half, making it the right option to placed on when it’s essential to get to work or simply zone out. Then once more, possibly simply flip the lights off and put some headphones on, and get misplaced within the nostalgia.
