Rah Zen’s Midnight Satori emerges from beyond time and space, serving as the Boston-based beat-maker's sonic thesis of his journey into the mystical world of lucid dreams and inner visions. Satori, a Japanese word meaning “sudden awakening,” defines the flashes of insight Rah has experienced in his creative process. Rah flips, mangles, and distorts compelling samples over off-kilter drums, creating an ethereal and spiritually engaging soundscape. Heavily sprinkled with vocal clips on dreams, metaphysics and the nature of our reality, Midnight Satori, guides the listener through a series of vignettes. “Lunar Eclipse,” the intense and solemn opening track, tears the soul apart for the subsequent reparation that takes place as Midnight Satori progresses. The record plays like a cosmic escapade, delving into territories both dark and light. The ominous “Nightworks,” and meditative “Soular Eclipse,” slow the pace into a trance-inducing lull; while the colorful, heat-generating single “Tree of Life,” multi-faceted “Mindshift,” and amorous “Astral Love” provide glimmers of impassioned hope and optimism. Full of unpredictable turns and syncopated rhythms, the transcendental “Ways Within” features fellow Boston creative, Wavysight, and Brainfeeder signee/Flying Lotus collaborator, Jeremiah Jae, delivering skillful lyricism on the alchemy of daily inspiration. Corresponding analog visuals, constructed by New Orleans’ based artist, Metasonik, function symbiotically with Rah Zen’s music. The project comes to light via rising Los Angeles record label Dome of Doom. In its totality, Midnight Satori is a multi-media ode to the creative energy manifested in the late hours of the night into early morning, when most are asleep, and the lines between dream and reality become blurred.

Ok, WOW! Ok, now that’s been said. WOW on production! This is a series of trips. It’s all about the voice for me. It’s clever and visual.
The Lord and Nature, Mudblood, 4D, and Aquamane are so nice. A headphone must for full ear indulgence lol.

Devonwho is your favorite SoundCloud producer's favorite producer... (I got jokes). On the real tho, Dev is one of the funkiest, most soulful musicians I've ever heard. So, if you've been a Devonwho fanatic since "2088 Archives" like me, you can't go wrong with Betaloops, kiddddd. DJ MONĒT MIKE
