New York Haunted Welcomes Itzel Back Into The Fold With His Forthcoming Album Release ‘Scelero’ NYH196

Artist – Itzel

Album – NYH196/Scelero

Label – New York Haunted

The highly distinctive, Daniel Hoy aka Itzel rises to prominence once again on Dutch experimental label NYH with his exploratory electronic album, Scelero (The Latin word for Etch) set to be released on the 13th of this month after his sensational EP and LP releases last year. In 2018 Itzel’s unique digital craftmanship was demonstrated through a melodic, ambient techno album titled ‘Basalt’ which was a complete sonic excursion that offered a perfect blend of Electronica, IDM influenced Techno. This time around a mechanical animal of hard edged, menacing experimental sounds comes to life through a prism of human emotion, executed with Itzel’s soft focus version of all of, The Black Dog, Beaumont Hannant and B12’s best tracks, updated into a 2020 sound palette.

The production is truly magnificent on this deeply penetrating album, opening with ‘Phore’ a mathematical array of concise, drill-driven electronics, hard stamped on top of an undercurrent of earthy percussion which grows into a divergence of ethereal ambience. Following is the unsettling sounds of ‘Fresher’ an erratic flurry of manipulated electronics that feels urgent and repressed, intertwined through spacey ambient under and over currents. As where, ‘Was’ shifts the mood into an enormously atmospheric eastern style strut, with chiming keys and an enticing percussive allure that reminds me of something Plaid or U-Zig would lay down in the 90’s.

‘Circle Of you’ delivers bright modulation synthesizer which burns through elongated smothered vocals, providing an organic feel, that is fresh and stimulating, although wildly haunting and unnerving in atmosphere, as where ‘XT’ sits as one of the most deeply melodic, thrilling statements on this astonishingly dramatic, dynamically layered adventurous album. There are 10 thrilling tracks on this outstanding album, owning a stricking mass of technical elements to surprise and stimulate the headspace, so i will leave the rest for your sonic exploration…..

Please stay percolated and ENjoy!

In many senses, I am still discovering myself through the complex tapestry in which life continues to weave, gaining unique physical experience in order to aid the progression of my precious spirit, this will continue for the rest of my fated days and my understanding of who I am shall be determined through how I learn to react, act and adapt towards the circumstances I face. I do sincerely hope the span of this life is enough to fully come to terms with the potential of my unique existence, through deep-rooted understanding, compassion, and love, and that I may fully acknowledge the absolute full potential of my existence through the network of others. Thus far the core of my being has learned through unique experience and individual perspective that I am most certainly a creative soul who takes solace in the truth & liberty of artistic expression. Freedom lays behind the eyes within the evocative realm of one's imagination, transforming originality through individual perspective, this is when my art becomes yours. Inspiring, motivating different modes of expression to overall influence and shape a better world, to help elevate to a higher consciousness. We are part of the great web of life and in this way each and every one of us are interconnected, to create a major shift in consciousness. We must wholeheartedly start to believe in what can be created for the greater good of this world, in my view it is most certainly the power of thought and intention which connect us, no matter how near or how far. Being understood has always been of paramount importance to me, self-expression is something I have been aware of from a very young age. From my point of view, artistic expression has always been the most liberating and uniting mode. When I am not caught up in life's cogs I love to write poetry, short stories, and shoot photographs. I adore and feed off music, so I highly enjoy capturing the live music scene in the city of Glasgow, Scotland. I also enjoy writing for Uk Entertainments website, Louder than War, as well as run my own music blog www.Revel, Amalgamating my love of music, writing, as well as photographic expression (Music, Landscape, Street, Wedding), which gives me a great sense of creative release, therefore forging a strong sense of purpose in the way of documenting life's remarkable moments. I find working with creatives within the music industry is wholly inspiring even though at times it can be quite challenging, after all, the greatest realizations and lessons learned are born out of challenges. I figured, seeing as I have a platform for my music reviews, interviews and photography I thought it would be time to create a platform for my creative writing and poetry.....It takes courage to expose oneself through the intimacy of poetry, However, that is how we truly unite and grow in compassion and understanding of each other's true essence. I am a deep thinker, I understand the power of words and their meanings. I also understand how empowering artistic expression can be. There is a raw truth buried within each original idea combined with a power to help change the world. Artistic expression is forever transforming through interpretation, that is what I mean when I say "When My Art Becomes Yours" My philosophy is to understand more, in order to love more....... Love ~M~
