Hard-Wired Bit of Clanging Industrial

That's "broke ears / nvr loud enuf" by Sayuna

Sayuna lists “broke ears / nvr loud enuf” with #ambientmuzak as its primary, and sole, tag on SoundCloud. The track is neither. An abrasive, hard-wired bit of clanging industrial, it pounds its way through. It is half production-line monotony, half tribal dance ecstacy. The high-pitched squeal that provides the closest the piece has to a riff brings to mind the intense whine at the heart of Aphex Twin’s “Ventolin,” which is high praise. It wavers like some external source — a bad connection, humid weather, a faulty socket — is causing the line to arc wildly.

Track originally posted at There’s little information on Sayuna at the account page. Where most people list their location, it simply reads “zone transient,” and the space for additional information is given over to a variety of other SoundCloud accounts and keyword searches.
