Gqom meets hardcore meets military march.
Memory Hierarchy kicks off with "Liar's Dividend," which is all martial drums, swooping strings, bleating horns and guttural grunts. Those vocal sounds repeat on "Mutual Shaping," a fast hard drum track that replaces the aggression of past Osheyack material with newfound agility. If you're looking for brute power, look no further than "Testimony," which reinforces heaving gqom with a hardcore techno kick drum. This is the kind of unexpected fusion that's defined Osheyack's work since the beginning and made him a signature artist on one of experimental club music's leading imprints.
