UNITI take back ownership of darkness, sadness + the void in their Reclaiming the Void album compilation

UNITI released their latest compilation album RECLAIMING THE VOID via Soundcloud and Bandcamp  on August 17. 

The album themes itself around “womxn & non-binary artists reclaiming ownership of darkness, sadness & the void,” a concept they argue is often centered and defined by men and features original tracks from producers that include Born In Flamez, DEBITEnglesiaEstoc, Gitana, LIZZMx World, Terribilis and more.

The album moves seamlessly between sonic weight and texture, beginning with Petit Singe ‘s ‘Rapsodia’ where tiny tonal drumming and soft vocals rub up against each other, setting the listener up for the multi-rhythmic tones of Bonaventure‘s club and industrial layerings. A looping hi-hat feels like a timer in GANX‘s ‘Miz,’ zoning in one the ‘build up’ into LYZZA‘s ‘Been That Bitch’ that begins with light piano play and softly detunes itself into hip hop vocals, and so on.

To celebrate the release, UNITI (who are trio of Terribilis, Ganx and Englesia) hosted a night featuring performances by LSDXOXO, Bonaventure, Lady Amz, and UNITI themselves. On top of releasing music, the collective also host events where women and LGBTQ people can “have fun and be themselves.”
