Karl Olson (Ultraklystron) is back at it again with a new album called Null Signifier. It took me a second to warm up to it because at the time I wasn’t psychologically there to really grasp the direction in which Ultraklystron was going, but on the second time listening to the album, I realized the genius of this talented artist. It definitely goes hard in the paint and it has this trap music feel that is organic and very fluid.
I’m normally not a big fan of trap music or that style because I feel it’s tacky and doesn’t have the finesse of hip hop, but this album has made me a fan with the bars being spit and the beats are solid. I would say with songs like “Real Boss” and “Crunchyroll and Chill” I can stand behind it, but then again with an artist like Karl Olson taking the helm this is definitely something I can stand behind and listen to repeatedly. Ultraklystron has made me a fan of his style of trap music.
This is the example of something being done right and getting a clear message across to the masses. Everyone knows that if I’m not feeling an album one of two things will happen, I will not endorse it or I will rip it to shreds. Ultraklystron literally had me bopping my head to all the tracks on this album. I could definitely see this being played on the local radio stations in the top 10 songs of the day in their rotation and getting a few repeats on the request line.
This album will definitely get a lot of play time in my own personal music rotation because it is definitely worthy of being played in my whip during the day as I go from place to place while on my grind. All I can say is if you haven’t purchased Null Signifier, then you need to hurry up and do so. I give this album a solid 9 out of 10 because I felt it could have used a few more tracks, but if anything Ultraklystron has made me an even bigger fan of his work, so quit reading this and cop the album like right now!
