Featured Song: JKuch – Asteroids.
JKuch is in a realm of his own right now. His latest effort, “Asteriods,” is a grand achievement in sound design and engineering, zipping and beaming its way through an ethereal soundscape for over four minutes. This track is JKuch simply honing his craft, and it couldn’t be more fun.
“Asteroids” kicks off with style, echoing its way into the first drop, where the synths and lazer-esque pings take control of smooth bass thumps. The entire track repeats itself in this way, however JKuch has managed to use a plethora of samples and unique sounds to make each section feel totally original.
The first section emphasizes the sci-fi aesthetic, and is mostly powered by dreamy synths and zaps. The second has more of a brooding feel, and really showcases the Pensacola native’s finely-tuned production skills.
At this point in the track, the mix of sampling and rhythm work is so intertwined that it feels as though, much like in space, there is no room to breathe. Once JKuch has the listener in awe, he brings in his third section, an atmospherically dominated powertrip that coalesces all of the spacey sounds into a nice cooldown before landing the listener back on their feet.
With a style that is completely his own, it’s no wonder that JKuch has been generating so much buzz recently. Grab a free download of “Asteroids” here, and be sure to check out his other stunning tracks.
