This week's New Music feature comes from Elon Katz, a producer/electronic artist living in Los Angeles. Listen to his new track 'Freeway' ahead of his participation in Moogfest 2017.

As described by the producer himself...

"It uses the imagery of freeway interstates as metaphor for the state of accelerationism in the last decade, where laissez-faire and technology became one. Like a car merging into 80mph traffic, we find our individualism needing to assimilate into a greater, faster stream, often void of time and space for reflection. The voice (human) in the song gets sucked into cybernetic repetitions (the market) in the chorus, and towards the end it builds and crashes (quite literally), losing it's momentum eventually in favor of more conservative structures...a final chorus."

 

This week you could take home a creative tool that builds on the legendary lowpass filter design of Dr. Robert Moog: A Moog Moogerfooger MF-101 Lowpass Filter.  Click HERE, hit share, and you'll be automatically entered to win.
