Since the world feels like it’s nearing a catastrophic finale almost every day, we’re thankful Korean rapper YEN TECH’s debut full-length album Mobis is here to, at least, provide a fitting soundtrack while the events unfold. The high-octane 10-track project seems as if it’s pulled directly from a post-Earth future, packed with inhuman sonic subtleties that could easily be spliced together sound bites of a cyborg’s inner-mechanics.
A rejection of the organic to celebrate the theatrics of digital non-reality, the NYC-based artist makes direct dystopian references throughout his lyrics, from exo-suits to drones. Mobis‘ visual trailer elevates this narrative, offering a 40-second clip that’s so intense, an increase in heart rate is inevitable. His growling, assertive vocals align with brutal electronic production in an effort that’s most successful on album cuts, “Hunter – Seeker,” and, “Zero Angel.” It’s a Mad Max mentality with The Matrix styling—an apocalyptic fairytale we’d never wish to experience firsthand.
