Ep Review: The Forgotten - 'Chapter II: Into New Realities'

Coming off the cosmic success of Chapter I: The Forgotten, multiversal artist The Forgotten brings Chapter II: Into New Realities, showcasing a more contentious and atmospheric sound of celestial proportions.



The Forgotten has become one of the major mainstays within the EDM and Techno community. Since The Forgotten's last 2021 release, Chapter 1: The Forgotten effortlessly blended pop, EDM, and techno soundscapes, creating an engaging story of celestial proportions. Now, The Forgotten has birthed a follow-up to the cosmic journey of his own self-titled EP with Chapter II: Into New Realities showcasing some old faces and even revealing some new ones.


Miyoki continues to make her presence known in Chapter II with another heavy-hitter, "New Media." Contrasting with her sweet vocal harmonies against intrusive EDM soundscapes, "New Media" takes listeners into one of the best tracks on the EP, "Transcend." Another yesteryear trip down memory lane that segues into a nasty build of voltaic vibes and dreamy instrumental cadence, The Forgotten proves why he is one of the best EDM storytellers in the game today.

A collection of colorfully dynamic electronic and synthwave nuances, Chapter II: Into New Realities takes us on another engaging journey of ethereal proportions. Starting with the intergalactic and starry-eyed first experience, "AXS" featuring Boovox, The Forgotten constructs a rich and aggressive futuristic experience that gives way to other centerpieces that carve their creative path forward throughout the EP experience.

"Ghost Howl" is contentious and hauntingly beautiful. Featuring familiar face Miyoki, this unique atmospheric track deep dives into sublime 80's techno ear candy, "Break Away." With the vibrant harmonies self-contained within the instrumental nostalgia, "Break Away" is one track that stands out for its wistful exuberance.

The Forgotten's Chapter II: Into New Realities is a dazzling electronic ballet that courses through the veins of the listener, transporting them to another place and time while firmly grounding itself within the futuristic vibes of today. While there is no telling where the multi-genre artists will go from here, Chapter II: Into New Realities, brings promising news of more great music to come.
