Shamana is a member of the internet music collective Eco Tapes. He combines Trap, Vaporwave, and video game sound effects (amongst many other things) in his music to really create a unique palate. Admittedly I might not have picked this track up if it wasn’t labeled as ‘Progressive Metal’ on Soundcloud but let that be a lesson in describing your music as accurately and creatively as possible because I could not have put it any better. The track certainly has a ‘no f***s given’ ethos that calls to mind a Young Thug but labeling the track as Trap just does not do it justice. From the Soulja Boy “Crank That” sample to the robotic sound effects that sound like they came from Stephen Hawking’s chair, to the beat that seemingly goes no where and everywhere at the same time, “UP GRADE” is a remorseless riot that throws traditional rules of arrangement and musical progression in the trash.
