The Iowan producer shows incredible artistic brilliance in this new release.
As a highly active and versatile composer with training in choral music, art song, and professional composition, Logan Larson has turned himself into a raw creative force few minds can match.
An award-winning classic music composer who has been at the forefront of a new, unique sound that blends classical music with Electronic Dance Music (EDM), Logan Larson has consistently found ways to innovate and impress. Refusing in any way, shape, or form to compromise with his artistic vision, he’s brightly blazed a magnificent trail for himself with his releases, and as we look to the future, we can’t wait to see what he’ll show us next.
Having had his music performed in cities across the world like Toronto (Canada), Trieste (Italy), and Queensland (Australia), Logan Larson’s widespread appeal is a testament to the unifying power of good music. With a unique approach incorporating the building and releasing of tension as its inspiration, it's hard not to get completely engrossed in his releases. Masterfully controlling and blending harmonious (yet at times competing), a Logan Larson release isn’t simply something you listen to; it’s something you experience.
“The Monster You Made” is fittingly named, if anything, because in this project, Logan Larson has created a behemoth. Coming in at an hour and fifteen minutes long, “The Monster You Made” feels like an epic, expansive, and immersive journey into bass and melodic bass.
From the moment the project opens with “We Are The Unbroken: I. Bodies are Heavy,” Larson’s stuttering bass envelops you in an energetic and defiant soundscape. Present throughout “The Monster You Made” is Larson’s mastery of classic sounds and instruments as well.
Although classical instruments and bass-leaning EDM tracks do not usually go together, look no further than tracks like the titular “The Monster You Made” to see how they can bring out the best in each other. A lone, brave violin battles with intense waves of bass and synths before ultimately coming together to make a one-of-a-kind, elevated experience.
Interestingly, although “The Monster You Made” may invoke feelings of vengeance, this is not the project's focus. As offerings like “We Are The Unbroken” I-III, “You Can’t Make Fire Feel Afraid,” and “Let Me Save You” prove, “The Monster You Made” is not a story of vengeance but of resilience and strength.
As Logan Larson closes the project with the uptempo and slightly euphoric “Electric Thunder Dunk,” you feel a storm has passed, and the sun is finally shining out on the other side. Larson has outdone himself with this project, and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for him next. One thing is sure: good vibes and bass will be plentiful.
