Dance-punk duo Heartsrevolution recently dropped their incredible free-download concept mixtape titled ‘Revolution Rising,’ a collection of hip-hop-tinged electronic-punk anthems for the post-Tumblr generation. Featuring mind-bending samples from music and film alike, the mixtape is an audio-cultural snapshot of youth in revolt, a generation of kids lost in the binary of internet culture and reality TV dreams.
Hip-hop beats, sugary indie synths, and aggressive punk aesthetics help to carve a unique and cluttered sound, a fuzzy, freaked-out, frantic soundtrack for a numbed-out dance culture. Mixed by legendary hip-hop producer Just Blaze, singer Lo spits fire over the beats, lamenting our mindless, fame-obsessed youth. Frenetic and kinetic, the mixtape is a burst of battery-charged pop-culture criticism. Take a listen:
