Midnight Resonance feat. Kayda | Morpheus

“Morpheues is a collaboration between Midnight Resonance and Kayda. We wrote this during our Sound Design class at Dubspot. We pulled ideas from many different influences; crafting sounds from Techno to Dubstep – creating some sort of mysterious mental illness trip with heavy basses and dark synth line” – Ric

Fick Stigure | Beyond Reason

“We made this song during our Sound Design course at Dubspot as a class project. With this project, we wanted to try something different that was out of our comfort zone and took a lot of influence from Zomboy and Kill the Noise. We took what we learned in class and pushed our boundaries with new sounds that took influence from known dubstep artists.
