Only Now is the land where cyberpunk visions, ancient rhythms, and cult explorations into cosmic sound collide for profound results. Tuned metal, proto-real synthesis, and obsidian walls of atmosphere make up this reality unto itself. The project is a result of San Francisco based Kush Arora, who for over 19 years has produced uncompromising underground music. Whether he’s making Indo Caribbean dancehall, reworking kuduro, or creating ambience, his signature sound traverses genre lines and connects dots few dare to combine. Influences can be heard from Buraka Som Sistema to Wax Trax Records and haunting film soundtracks peppering Only Now. Definitions can only describe so much, Only Now’s roots lie with unbridled experimentation and a wall of sonic low end.
