Auvic Reinvigorates Glitch Hop With 'Voices Call' Album
Electronic dance music splinters into a seemingly endless amount of subgenres, leaving many genres left to vie for the spotlight. Glitch hop is one of the most underrepresented genres, perhaps due to its complex melodic structures. With The Glitch Mob being the genre's sole mainstream liason, glitch-hop has struggled to gain footing next to more popular genres.
Enter Auvic. We've featured two of his singles over the past month, and his double album Voices Call will release on February 23rd, 2015. Featuring 21 tracks total, Voices Call makes a strong case for Auvic as glitch hop's next leading producer. Following his debut album Voices, this new effort finds the producer exploring new, glitchy territory.
Auvic employs elements of dubstep, chiptune, house, and hip-hop to create his tracks. One of the album's greatest strengths lies in Auvic's ability to maintain a familiar sound without it ever growing stale. In the current producer's arms race to emulate chart-topping sounds, Auvic stands by his style to separate himself from the competition.
Some of the vocal tracks get a bit too cheesy, but Auvic shines with his instrumental tracks. Some instrumental tracks utilize vocoder vocals, similar to those heard in Daft Punk songs, and those vocals give his music that extra bit of personality. Auvic may not be a household name yet, but Voices Call could very well expose new listeners to his impressive body of music.
