It seems like Notaker has been ubiquitous lately; the breakthrough American producer has received much acclaim for his musical embodiments of ambiguous natural concepts, like his interpretation of fire through "Born in the Flames" on Armada Captivating and the mystical "Shimmer" on Monstercat. Next up, let Notaker take you on a sonic journey through an underwater world in "Abyss." With its warbling bassline, cavernous plucks, and Notaker's expert use of crashing waves and a deep inhale of breath, don' t be surprised if you emerge telling stories of Atlantis. Following the trend on "Born in the Flames," the new release evokes a darker feeling without seeming ominous and exquisitely captures a feeling in a mere few minutes of a song. "Abyss" finds its home on Mau5trap, putting Notaker amongst an exclusive group of artists on deadmau5's avante-garde imprint.
