Dancingshade This artist has a lot of talent. Hoping this lightning in a bottle can be harnessed. Favorite track: Head or Tails.

FLESH MECHANIC Ikigai leaves in the dust most cyberpunk synth releases, because it actually understands the importance of Japanese aesthetics and influences. There are some crunchy bass synths on this album, but the overall sound is really otherworldly and dystopian, many times almost weightless in its delivery (the dreamy vocals on Birds in Dawn melt my heart every time), and there's no doubt in my mind that this album will appear on my list of favorite 2021 releases. Don't miss out on this! Favorite track: Birds in dawn (Burning down).

Same shame, And go away, Play and survey, In this last day, Die halfway, Retry every day, In this game, It's Head or Tails. Die... Everyday... In this game.

Is there anyone there ? I wear nothing but hair. Is there a girl on my chair ? I swear, it's me over there. It's clear and then disappear. My dear, why are you here ? Please join me... Can't you stop me ? Can't you stop me ? Can't you stop me ? Can't you me or start our fight ? Start a conversation with our imagination again... Wake me up ! Choose your weapon, take off my arms; Choose your weapon, come in my arms. Choose you weapon, stop the alarms. Reckless effects and sweet thunderstorms. I am so stuck inside me again. I am so stuck inside me again

I'm fly, flying, inside your mind, Still downwind into the wind, Feeling down, and down, and down, And burning your lies, Still fly in the dawn, Sly you see my fall. I'm fly, Into the wind, Feeling down, Burning your lies... Still fly, In the dawn, Sly you see my fall...
