Genre-blending artist iFeature (moniker of Paris-based Jan Contopidis) has unveiled a new single, ‘Sky Of Babylon’ on the 1st of December 2023. Originally from Hamburg (Germany), iFeature has been playing the piano since the age of 5 and has since developed an aptitude as a multi-disciplinary maestro. He is known for his tirelessly DIY approach to everything he makes, taking on the roles of mixing, mastering, recording, creating all their sounds, and delivering their emotive vocals.
‘Sky Babylon’ takes its name from the world of Sonic Rush, a video game that iFeature holds dear. In the context of the game, “Sky Babylon” is the gateway to a realm of higher dimensions, a place where the gods themselves reside. Inspired by this concept, iFeature believes that music has the power to connect us to these higher dimensions. Through his innovative soundscapes and electrifying beats, iFeature aims to open the “sky door” to a new realm of auditory experiences. The track promises a thrilling journey into a sky-scraping sonic world where electronic and dance elements collide, creating an otherworldly atmosphere that will leave you in awe.
‘Sky Babylon’ is an adrenaline-fuelled injection of energy and will indeed transport the listener to another dimension. Pulsing breakbeats, atmospheric synth scapes and feverish modulations deliver a high-octane sonic journey that remains entirely unpredictable and captivating throughout. iFeature’s vocals, while effects-laden and glitchy, express potent feelings of rejection, isolation and emotional turmoil, seamlessly blending the melancholy lyrical content with the electric energy of the song’s production.
