Hectic Zeniths is the work of bedroom producer and multi-instrumentalist Adam Morgan Prince. Nearly three years in the making, the densely layered project builds around original piano compositions with an atmospheric collage of chopped and pitched dollar-bin vinyl samples, live instrumentation, synths, and haunting vocals. Featuring violinist Patrick Bailey, guitarist Dave Cohen, and The Yetti on drums.

‘Hectic Zeniths’ is an anagram for the German word ‘Zeitschtichten,’ meaning "layers of time." The artist has previously released a free EP and an array of hip hop and electronic remixes under the name ‘amplifya.’ Born in Brooklyn, NY, he is currently teaching high school math in Philadelphia.

Excerpts from reviews of two songs leaked from the album, “Curtain” and “I Might Drown”:

[ 365aay.com ] ~ The luster of Hectic Zeniths’ “Curtain” comes in the glorious piano line that accompanies the muffled vocals. It rides a lulling wave between hypnotic and addicting like a surfer avoids the coral when coming in off a huge wave. Its experimental atmosphere is evident when the hi-hats and drum crashes boom with sonic clarity…the movement we get from it is unexplainable.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Okay... let's face it, we may not have tons and tons of hip-hop / trip-hop posts on TSS but the fact is... we DO have some solid hip-hop entries and by solid I simply mean EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD trip-hop / hip-hop titles. That said [ Hectic Zeniths ] on the other side is something ENTIRELY DIFFERENT and on it's own league. I've never heard so much keys / piano / violin basically classical elements blend so well with hip-hop tunes. I don't know what I'm going to grab for my next post but this could well be [ THE POST OF THE DAY ].

NOTE: This album is on a fix price on BandCamp at this stage of the game and although it will be on set on [ name your price ] on a later stage, you can still download three tracks off this record straight away. Like I always say... SUPPORT the artist where ever possible. BRILLIANT SOUND from [ Intro ] to [ Outro ].

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
