NEW TRACK: Z◊ɤɤ◊B▲Bͼ// - "Plagiarism Is More Fun In The Philippines"

A lot of music snobs easily dismiss witch house music as manifestation of post-internet ennui hiding under dragged down beats and haunted moodscapes, textured and screwed using digital manipulation to make it sound like roboticized ghost-core lullabies that bedroom producers would love to fondle during midnight. Witch house artists also have this habit of manipulating old and new pop songs—its identity washed out for ethereal effect. Vocals are then chopped up and sometimes buried in the mix, relegating its function as part of the background. But behind the micro-genre’s occult-based aesthetics and digital tricks, it is mostly known for sending subtle social message, circulated across interwebs in a language that only a few could decipher and understand.

Upcoming Cult Shit Media Blackout artist Z◊ɤɤ◊B▲Bͼ// shares the micro-genre’s subversive take via his new track “Plagiarism Is More Fun In The Philippines,” expressing disdain over what seems to be Senator Tito Sotto’s denial and commission of plagiarism. As a gut-punch tirade to the Senator’s embrace of intellectual dishonesty, Z◊ɤɤ◊B▲Bͼ// skews VST & Company’s “Awitin Mo, Isasayaw Ko” (Sotto’s former band’s biggest hit to date) while slowing it down 30 times its actual tempo, dragging it like a synth-goth juke from someone’s Skype slumber party. He also injects samples from Tito Sen’s speech about plagiarism, directed to what he pertains in the email as “a political statement on the absence of intelligence in our political leadership, as well as the absence of talent in our entertainment.”
