Synth Single Review: "Broken Society" by I-SAAC feat. Magnavolt

Karl is a longtime freelancer who's passionate about music, art, and writing.


I-SAAC’s Broken Society is a seething, ominous cyberpunk exploration that is full of menacing sensations and palpable danger. A shadowy sonic rush and metallic clanking and opens the track as the quietly seething bass shifts. Gigantic drums begin throbbing into the music along with a threatening vocal sample. Clashing, heaving bass growls along with slamming drums and distant, worried sounds move high in the background.

The drums and bass are full of dangerous sensations and tidal power. A segment full of cavernous open space and swirling mists adds more threatening feelings. The vocal samples are sinister and twisting as the heaving drums and bass surge. The distant, almost choral synths are eerie as the drums and bass charge fiercely onwards in a leaping breakbeat that is full of aggression. The track slows to half time again over huge drums before the darkness fades into silence.
