Never one to do the same thing twice, Equip ushers in a new era of original vaporwave. After I Dreamed of a Palace In The Sky’s gauzy new age and last years tribute to 16 bit RPGS OSTs, Synthetic Core 88, comes a new adventure, “CURSEBREAKER X”.
CURSEBREAKER ZERO is a series of three singles leading up to the album, featuring self-sampling eccojams as vinyl exclusive b-sides.
The third and final single, “SHADOW DANCER” is the epic score to the penultimate battle leading up to the final boss. The mythical Lightbringer sword is within reach- but it’s shadow guardian won’t let it go that easily. Cascading pianos, plucked strings, and arpeggiated harps float in the tense air above the majestic battle, tom rolls and slushed out snares echoing the sounds of swords clashing. There are no continues.
