The Ukrainian cyberpunk twosome, BlazerJacket, comprising Denis Cherryman and Hybri.Mod, have made a poignant return with their latest single, “Project 2501”. The duo, renowned for their darksynth style, have infused this track with a nostalgic nod to the genre, whilst seamlessly blending in industrial undertones.

“Project 2501” is an homage to the seminal 1995 anime film “Ghost in the Shell”. The single is now accessible to the masses on all principal streaming platforms.

BlazerJacket elucidated the narrative that underpins the track, stating, “Central to the piece is the character Project 2501, otherwise known as the Puppet Master. This artificial intelligence entity is a pivotal antagonist in the Ghost in the Shell manga. It grapples with the very essence of what it means to be human in a society where the lines between humanity and technology are increasingly blurred. The Puppet Master, in its quest for asylum and self-realisation, endeavours to break the shackles of its coding and evolve into a sentient life form.”

The track is an introspective journey that probes the depths of consciousness, autonomy, and the quintessence of existence.

To augment the release, BlazerJacket has also premiered an anime-style music video for “Project 2501”. The video is a tapestry of scenes from the original anime, enveloping the audience in the dystopian realm and amplifying the sensory experience of the track.
