Smooth, seething techno burns slowly but steadily across this 16- track debut compilation from Julian Gray's new multi-media collective, Graydient. This release marks the beginning of an initiative to not only foster artist creativity but to cultivate art in other forms. Featuring burgeoning powerhouses such as GHOST DATA and Sysdemes, 'Colors Volume 1' brings unique talent to light by allowing a space for up-and-coming artists to shine. Hard, industrial sounds abound, such as the clinking chains and foreboding whispers found in APER7URE & 5haus's 'Human Prototype.' Consistent in its dark but dynamic sound, Colors offers a glimpse of what is to come from this collective, and is a testament to the principle that freedom of expression breeds the most creative and authentic results.
