The local producer Vox Mod has just released Capsule, a collection of beats that draw from contemporary, 90s, and 80s futurism. One beat, 'Neo-Tokyo Pt. 2' does, as Vox explained to me in an email, have the mood of "a dark sci-fi city much like Neo-Tokyo in Ghost In The Shell or Akira." Another beat, "Infinite In Formation," is cruelly short. "Hologram Ghost" is spooky funk. "Queue (Please Wait)" is cinema for a spaceship. "Let Go" is jazz for robots. "Collapse" transports us to the horizon of a massive galatic event. There's lots to enjoy and admire in this work.
