Euforisk proudly presents HOBO1EP
The dystopic reality of a broke gamer turned into melancholic diy beauty
Made during sleepless nights, on parkbenches, rooftops, and in alleyways, HOBO1EP is a dark fictional game-music piece produced entirely on an inherited smartphone with a freeware studio set-up. The title is taken from Armour Games Hobo1, a free online game depicting a rampaging homeless person, attacking his society. HOBO1EP can be seen as a meta-soundtrack where the artist personal life-situation merges with the story of the online game character, releasing the perils of a destructive life-situation in melancholic beauty.
For its official release on Euforisk the HOBO1EP has been mirrored by a remix album consisting of 8 tribute remixes by fellow underground artists, releasing its electronic darkness to another dimension.
