An aberration from VNDMG’s signature sound, Facing Ghosts is autobiographical, expressive, and woven together by a thematic approach to sound design. Always a forward thinking producer, VNDMG creates a lavish musical landscape with haunting atmospherics, experimental broken beats, and progressive melodies which seek to lull you into a spooky state of musical euphoria. Painstakingly hand-crafted from start to finish, this album tells the story of the darker side of self exploration.
Featured on the album are collaborations with Rhymesayers Entertainment’s ‘Abstract Rude’ and the Bay Area’s beloved DJ Balance. Alongside the 7 original productions, Facing Ghosts presents 4 remixes from some of the most boundary pushing producers on the planet. Bleep Bloop, resident producer of the Internet and front man for DJ Shadow’s imprint Liquid Amber, lends his indescribable style to Rhinestone Nightmare. UK-based Etched, a premiere host of Reprezent Radio UK, delivers a fresh future take on the glitchy maelstrom that is Sweatbox. A Bay Area rising producer, ONHELL, provides a uniquely spacious remix of ‘Show Me’ that twists and turns entirely. Closing out the album is the dark, hard-hitting, progressive remix of ‘Show Me’ from Virginia based wunderkind Ethan Glass.
