My new EP “Khrysos” literally means “gold”. I originally was inspired by this Golden Eagle that would make this epic “cawww” and fly around our house in Oakland, CA, which you’ll find traces of hidden in the art and on the album. So the Latin name for Golden Eagle is “Aquila chrysaëtos” and the ancient Greek derivative of “chrysaëtos” is “khrysos” and literally means “gold”. Hearkening back to the theme brought in on my last record, “Golden Tremendous”, I stuck with it and took the mythology further, tapping into the greed of man and its ultimate destructiveness. This is a literal translation from an ancient Greek lyric poet named “Pindar” who lived from c. 522 – c. 443 BCE: “Khrysos (Gold) is a child of Zeus; neither moth nor rust devour it; but the mind of man is devoured by this supreme possession.”
I hope you enjoy this album. I believe its my most progressive piece of art I’ve done yet with the height of my production skills culminating to this point so far.
Shout out GRiZ and All Good Records for having me on his imprint label as well as Joshua Mays from Oakland, CA on the INCREDIBLE album art and shout out Jasha Space Jesus and Aaron Bleep Bloop for joining me on this adventure and remixing one of the songs, both of which will appear on the record.
