LISTEN: Aleister X — Half Speed Mastered

Some might call his music dubstep, while others may say it’s Cockney rap, industrial or even psychedelic pop, but one thing is for sure, it’s hard to place Aleister X in any music genre—which is precisely the reason why he’s starting to gain our attention.

With a penchant for darkness and performance art, Aleister X is bringing a new experimental sound—full of catchy hooks and a brilliant blending of musical influences—to the masses.

His latest album,”Half-Speed Mastered,” is said to be influenced by LA culture. “It’s meant to be a contemporary L.A. noir love affair” X explains. “I love the Hollywood dark-side-of- Tinseltown vibe as well as the iconic images of bungalows, canyon houses, swimming pools and cars, weirdos, the “Boogie Nights” to “Bang Bus”-era porn industry, and Rad Culture – surfing, skateboarding, beach culture, punk, surf rock, stoner rock, west coast rap, rock and psychedelia; all the cool Southern California shit.”

If you’re looking for a new, fresh sound, but with a tinge of twisted darkness, Aleister X just might be for you. Take a listen!
