Hectic Zeniths - Then and now
"Taken from hectic zeniths self-titled album, available at www.hecticzeniths.com"
Hectic Zeniths is the work of bedroom producer and multi-instrumentalist Adam Morgan Prince. Nearly three years in the making, the densely layered project builds around original piano compositions with an atmospheric collage of chopped and pitched dollar-bin vinyl samples, live instrumentation, synths, and haunting vocals. Featuring violinist Patrick Bailey, guitarist Dave Cohen, and The Yetti on drums.
'Hectic Zeniths' is an anagram for the German word 'Zeitschtichten,' meaning "Layers of Time." The artist has previously released a free EP and an array of hip hop and electronic remixes under the name 'amplifya'. Born in Brooklyn, NY, he is currently teaching high school math in Philadelphia, PA.
