death's dynamic shroud have been a constant presence in the vaporwave scene since 2014, releasing some of the subgenre's most well-known and best-loved albums. The collective, founded by Tech Honors, James Webster, and Keith Rankin of Orange Milk Records, has released at least 15 projects since 2017, but all three original members have not appeared on any of those releases at the same time. The upcoming project from dds will feature Honors, Webster, and Rankin, and its first song "Judgment Bolt" is streaming above in an eye-catching music video with retro-leaning CGI.
On 2021's Faith In Persona, death's dynamic shroud polished their sound and doubled down on the pop influences while retaining its discombobulating nature ("See Me," a song from that project that slices up Dua Lipa's "Don't Start Now" into a free-associated soundtrack for a Sonic The Hedgehog level, is representative of its exciting vibe). "Judgment Bolt" continues the search for untraditional dancefloor bangers, channeling Skrillex and the digital miasma of classic vaporwave. dds's upcoming album doesn't have a release date, but it does have a home; 100% Electronica, the vaporwave label founded by George Clanton and Lindsey French a.k.a. Neggy Gemmy.
