Recovery, Faith, Disruption, and Perseverance with Street Fever

In the heart of Boise, Idaho, a mysterious figure known only as Street Fever emerges, offering a gritty beat-heavy symphony of sound and vision. With their latest album, ‘Absolution,’ Street Fever invites listeners into a world of experimentation and profound introspection.

Rooted in a diverse array of influences ranging from hardcore rap to industrial techno, Street Fever’s music is a testament to the eclectic journey of their life. From childhood immersion in the shrines of Three 6 Mafia to the formative years spent within the DIY hardcore scene, Street Fever’s artistry is a tapestry interwoven from threads of hardship and resilience.

Like other encapsulating artists, behind them lies a story of profound struggle and eventual triumph. After enduring the painful loss of all possessions, multiple institutionalizations, and a unique/harrowing brush with mortality in a Southeast Asian prison, Street Fever’s journey toward recovery and self-discovery is nothing short of cinematic, and their 26 thousand monthly listeners are there for every last second. 

In ‘Absolution,’ Street Fever uncovers their experiences into a powerful sermon on recovery, faith, disruption, and perseverance. The album serves as a platform for Street Fever to speak candidly about their own battles with addiction and the arduous path toward redemption.¬†

This body of work includes 15 tracks that seamlessly blend elements of techno, industrial, electro, rap, hardcore, and EBM – it’s a fascinating expedition through the depths and complexities of the human spirit. 

Each composition is imbued with a sense of urgency and authenticity that hooks you with every second. With body-moving tracks like ‘Trust’ and ‘In your Lungs’ to more minimalist songs like ‘Fate’, ‘Limitless’ and ‘Kill the Hate’, Street Fever is a multifaceted mixture of everything adored in the electronic music scene. 

Street Fever’s ‘Absolution’ deftly navigates the delicate balance between destructive possession and holy reclamation, offering a beacon of hope for those who may be struggling with their demons. These themes are seen heavily in tracks like ‘Betrayal’, ‘Repent’ and our favourite titled ‘Sinner’. 

As Street Fever continues to evolve as an artist and spiritual seeker, ‘Absolution’ stands as a testament to their resilience and unwavering determination to share their story with the world. In a society plagued by uncertainty and turmoil, Street Fever’s message of personal and spiritual growth is more relevant than ever.

Experience the raw emotion and surpassing energy of an artist who refuses to be silenced, offering a glimpse into the power of music and art to heal and inspire.
