MiM0SA copes with death on third single ‘Freak’ from his forthcoming LP, ‘Psychedelic Stereo VOL. II’
Emerging from the shadows of the underground, Northern California based electronic music producer MiM0SA (real name Tigran Mkhitaryan) is proud to announce the release of his latest single “Freak.” The track is the third single release featured on MiM0SA’s long-awaited, forthcoming album release, Psychedelic Stereo VOL. II. A follow-up to MiM0SA’s beloved original 2010 Psychedelic Stereo, the second volume was created as a gift to the fans that have been following him since day one. The album celebrates the evolution and growth of his creative artistry over the course of the last decade.
Emotive and grimy, “Freak” starkly contrasts from the first two lead singles featured on Psychedelic Stereo VOL. II. Laced with its dark leaning vibe, hypnotic rhythms, rolling bass lines, and a nostalgic vocal sample taken from the iconic 1996 Wayans Brothers film, Don’t Be a Menace, MiM0SA does what fans love him most for. That is, deep, dark, undulating sub bass. Accented by celestial synths, “Freak” serves as a powerful reminder that we can find light and joy even in the darkest of circumstances.
“As the third single, ‘Freak’ juxtaposes the two lead singles with its more wild, celebratory vibe. I got inspired to create this track when I was rewatching Don’t Be a Menace during quarantine. I thought it would be nostalgic and funny to sample that film for anyone that grew up in that era.”MiM0SA
Recorded in 2019, the second installment of Psychedelic Stereo is a celebration of life, friendship, travels, struggle, self-discovery, failure, nostalgia, perseverance, redemption, love, and death. Mkhitaryan lost his two best friends within six months of each other, taking their deaths especially hard. Created as a form of musical therapy, the album commemorates the lives of his two close friends while ushering in a new era of the MiM0SA legacy. VOL. II harkens to the wisdom gained since the release of the original Psychedelic Stereo, revisiting the nostalgic vibes of the earlier era of MiM0SA with its myriad of musical flavors and influences.
“It was a heavy year for me to say the least,” says MiM0SA. “I spent a lot of time recovering and getting sober and reflecting on the last 10 years of my life.”
Psychedelic Stereo VOL. II is due for wide release next Friday, December 11, on Alpha Pup Records.
