Imagine that the Bloglin is a cool-kids club on some off-world colony circa 2133AD. A place where, due to advancements in the field of hyper-immortality, raythedestroyer and ohaileigh wax philosophical over the merits of classical trap music from the 2010s. A place not so much rife with scum and villainy, as with neo-trill virtual teens and IRL aliens. It’s a setting wherein I imagine myself bursting through the doors, beaten and weathered by the cosmic elements. I cast a silence over the room with my ghastly appearance. Blood-stained and bruised, wearing nothing but the tattered remains of an asteroid mining uniform, and crying “BLOOD SPORT!” before collapsing.
At least that’s what happens in my head when I couple the idea of Arc Neon‘s latest output with my absence from the Bloglin over this past week. Blood Sport 2092 is a synthetic love letter from an unforgiving future where blah blah blah blah blah. You know the drill. Something like “FutureCorp televises live footage of people killing each other on their world-sized studio planet in some backwoods, barren part of the galaxy.”
The cheese factor is sooooo strong with this one, but I can’t stop listening to it. There’s definitely a lean toward 80s VGM buried beneath the synths, and Arc Neon could easily score a Double Dragon remake with sounds like this.
