Saakred Releases New EP 'Criminal'

A three month engineering exploration diving further into MIDI production via Ableton Live. Set before, between and after body reconstruction, Saakred works to sonically demonstrate the intensity of dysphoria, paranoia, surgery, drugs and nitelife while remembering to stay playful (F.O.M.O/H.O.M.O). Themes explored: psychological isolation via physical displacement, narcissism in the digital age and the potentiality of genuine relationships with artificial technology in the loneliest of nights. The album opens with “Say Siri”, a live recording of a genuine conversation with Siri documenting a surprising emotional connection to what seems to be an empathetic robot. The minimal production heard is in part an attempt at baring a personal vulnerability to the audience through sonic minimalism. Criminal is a direct response to the criminalization of Latinos under recent U.S. government and can be specifically heard in the album’s most direct track, "The Criminal, The Wetback, The Giver".
