Minnesota releases ‘Altered States EP’ as a free download
As we predicted it would, Minnesota’s Altered States EP delves deep into the more psychedelic and transcendent elements of dubstep. Tracks like “Yoga Pants,” “Tokyo,” and “Indian Summer” feature conspicuous trap percussion, before veering into powerful, analog synth-driven drops. “To the Floor” and “Float” maintain a distinct glitch hop feel, showcasing Minnesota’s penchant for hip hop. On the whole, the EP is a clean, well-wrought conception: an amalgam of dubstep, trap, glitch hop, and ambient. Pick up the entire EP for free from Minnesota’s website, and get lost in his slick, soporific basslines.
