A stream-of-consciousness reflection on the hardcore community, the Brampton, Ontario-based producer combines elements of punk, hardcore, and industrial music to address the real ones in the scene.
“I’ve found love and comfort within [the scene,]” explains Ortiz, “but I’ve also identified the bullshit drama and empty words of certain others within it.”
“People are constantly trying to escalate situations over nothing and [they] talk just to talk. It’s high school shit. If it pisses you off, then the shoe fits.”
