Isolation. Walking through a crowded street, while still feeling distant from everyone that is there. This is shown in the cover of the Cyberpunk album by Dizzy Rambunctious, and this feeling of isolation is explored through this work.
He takes a different approach to this album, that he hadn’t gone in before, and the final product is an impressive compilation of music that fits synonymously together. He incorporates the cyberpunk moniker sound, while using hip-hop drum loops that has some of the songs give off this eerie feeling, that is quickened by the drum sounds, which is fantastically done; such as in the song, One Piece.
This album carries around this eerie feeling through multiple songs, that is there to support the isolation that the creator wanted the listener to feel in this album.
In most cyberpunk stories, the central focus is how their society has relied too heavily on technology to push them forward, and this focus gets them detached from themselves. They end up seeing one another as things, instead of human beings, which ends up leading to people revolting from the established norms, and reflecting on the past instead to move forward.
A bit of generalization there, but the main takeaways are that the themes in those stories are established here in this album. Through the song direction expressing remoteness, the drum loops conveying the quick pace of the society; the samples hinting at some of the messages that Dizzy wanted to highlight (Comfort Zone), and piano keys that presented a contrast against the quickened drum beat (inner conflict, or societal conflict).
This is a personal opinionated look into the work that was put into by Dizzy Rambunctious, and I would suggest to listen to this thirty-three-minute album, and lose yourself to the world that the artist presents to you.
Personal Favorites: Main St., Ride, and One Piece.
