Recently, Zipten released another extended play release named Guitronica Cortex with six compositions that are serving as a proper continuation of his previous recordings. Zipten continues his devotion towards perfectly balanced instrumental music, entirely stacked with marvelous ideas and exquisite musicianship.
Guitronica Cortex showcases tremendous skills through detailed arpeggiated thematics, robust riffages, progressive guitar solos, and other virtuosities. There’s a hearable layer of beautiful ambient and drone sequences, laying beneath guitar maneuvers that illustrate more complex imagery about these compositions. Zipten includes progressive, psychedelic, space, post, and indie rock in his music. However, this material gradually expands into psychedelic ambient house machinery as the album shifts towards the end. The guitars are still involved in the process, but their presence takes a more minimalistic approach than before. For some weird reason, both sides of Zipten are working together in harmony so you won’t notice any gaps in quality within these songs. Besides the dominant presence of house music, you may stumble upon some psychedelic trance arpeggiated melodies, classic techno beats, electronic keys, and other characteristics of the electronic genre.
Zipten explores every possible genre to the maximum without spoiling his previously established concept. No matter if he explores progressive rock, post-rock, or goes even further by taking some fundamentals of electronic music, his music remains entertaining and interesting from scratch to finish. You’ll be pleasantly surprised about his capabilities and how he showcased endless musical possibilities through tremendous ideas and exceptional musicianship.
