Why isn't this guy famous yet? Cursed chimera mixed the cynical hard stylings and on aphex twin with haunting synth-lines and melodies that remind me of Dwayne Goettel RIP; The medallic conscience of Skinny Puppy. He easily moves from electro-industrial sub-genre to a unique form of Dub step. Then to a slick production and arrangement that hints the rare quaily electro pop. You can imagine his music in a club or on a heart pounding performance lux car commercial sometimes. He pulls you in for a very different ride every time. The equivalent of entering a twisted sonic roller coaster. A ride that starts out in a blacked out cave and sends you up to the stars to take a peak of the universe, and back again to the earthly unknown. To hear more of what the hell I am talking about, he has a myspace page. Myspace.Com/cchimeria.
