Electronic Pop artist 2020k releases a deluxe edition of Burst Mode exclusively on Bandcamp on December 27th, 2019. Written, produced, performed, and engineered by 2020k’s sole member RJ Kozain, the release comes on the self-started 2020k LLC imprint. The standard edition of Burst Mode is still available physically on CD and across all streaming platforms.
The record explores how technology has shaped and separated lines of communication. It offers a layered commentary on the evolving nature of relationships. “Heaven” delivers a manic onslaught of unrequited text messages, while its lead single and title track “Burst Mode” intensely zooms in on the plethora of issues the internet has been called out for – from bullying, to over-beautifying selfies, and more.
Burst Mode is mastered by Christopher Leary (Ochre) and includes tracks co-produced by Sparkwood Records recording artist Scyye and underground Electronic musician Kinesthetiac. The LP is currently available in standard digital and CD form and has been re-released as a digital deluxe edition in late December 2019, complete with two title track remixes – one by Pittsburgh, PA’s darkwave musician Doors in the Labyrinth; the other remix by Minneapolis, MN’s Wet Eyes.
A Liz B. directed music video for “Burst Mode” is currently available on YouTube and Vimeo.
