Alluding to the title, “Blood Kakao,” one can only imagine DJ NJ DRONE is trying to audibly convey the feeling of translating a text written in blood. Trying to figure out who’s blood it is, feeling the revenge upon finding out, and what he’ll do when he gets there. Show More Summary

Music Review: Ahnnu - Perception

Ahnnu Perception [Leaving; 2015] by Birkut Rating: My recent fascination for field recordings got me thinking about what makes certain pieces within that practice more affecting than others.
