Beat Culture – “Useless”

Beat Culture is the name of 17 year old Sunik Kim, from Hong Kong. According to his bio, he only started making music as of February 2011, creating post dub / experimental pop while drawing influence from artists like Balam Acab, Gold Panda, and SBTRKT. There’s a wonderful build up that starts with the metallic ticks and glitchy female vocals and ultimately progresses into a dreamy cascade of synths that are guaranteed to make you shake in wonder at the talent. The last 30 seconds are an absolute thrill, as the build up cited earlier finally releases into a rush of pulsing bassline and the splashing of previously mentioned synths before suddenly ending with a flourish. A lovely song to listen to early in the morning.

I feel that this following image best describes the song:
