After debuting on R3HAB’s CYB3RPVNK with “Sirius,” Cityzen is back with his second single “Rave Tech Repeat,” a meticulously crafted dancefloor killer with a heavy underground appeal. With its kick-drum driven basslines, snarling synths and funky melodies, “Rave Tech Repeat” draws inspiration from the darker and more covert genres of electronic music such as techno and tech-house. With his ability to bend time and subsequently exist both in the past and the present, Cityzen has once again proved his ability to craft a sound that is both a timeless nod to classic sounds and a unique vision of the future for dance music. Although we’re no closer to figuring out exactly who or what Cityzen truly is, he continues to impress and inspire with each new release. Keep an eye out for the next drop from CYB3RPVNK’s family member, and perhaps the most intriguing one yet!
Although not much is known about Cityzen yet, we can be extremely positive about three noticeable attributes: his affinity for the color red, unique glasses, and his desire to give people the intense beats that one would imagine hearing on the metallic streets of a futuristic metropolitan. Perhaps Cityzen can live in the past and the future at the same time, giving him the ability to merge vintage hardware like Moogsynthesizers with futuristic house rhythms of the modern age. If “Sirius” is any indication, Cityzen is on the verge of something huge and previously unimagined, and all the world can do is wait. Armed with his sparkling glasses and affinity for the color red, Cityzen brings to life a crossover of old and new that will become the unique sound of the next generation.
