hey..i released a new 5 song ep today. its called the synflood ep.
A SYN flood is a form of denial-of-service attack in which an attacker sends a succession of SYN requests to a target's system in an attempt to consume enough server resources to make the system unresponsive to legitimate traffic.
- The client requests a connection by sending a SYN (synchronize) message to the server.
- The server acknowledges this request by sending SYN-ACK back to the client.
- The client responds with an ACK, and the connection is established.
This is called the TCP three-way handshake, and is the foundation for every connection established using the TCP protocol.
A SYN flood attack works by not responding to the server with the expected ACK code. The malicious client can either simply not send the expected ACK, or by spoofing the source IP address in the SYN, causing the server to send the SYN-ACK to a falsified IP address - which will not send an ACK because it "knows" that it never sent a SYN.
The server will wait for the acknowledgement for some time, as simple network congestion could also be the cause of the missing ACK. However, in an attack, the half-open connections created by the malicious client bind resources on the server and may eventually exceed the resources available on the server. At that point, the server cannot connect to any clients, whether legitimate or otherwise. This effectively denies service to legitimate clients. Some systems may also malfunction or crash when other operating system functions are starved of resources in this way.
i dont know what to call this music. other than acid-trap, or sinisterstep or something. people seem to like it. very very dark jungly music with some chip and vgm elements. its 808 and 303 heavy, i also use some juno, jupiter8, paia fatman, sh-01, original drums of mine, who knows what else. have a listen and see. very limited amen, i remember that, aahah. there is steppers and d-lines tho, this is a trap affair, but maybe in the influences, its got the elements of jungle and grime...or maybe those were the vessel that brought this here.
its a short release for me because i always think an ep is 8 or 10 songs, so i went for something a little shorter. theres a bonus remix of a ratatat track in there as track 5. but its called track 4. figure that one out. drifting rhythms as well as melodies with some sounds that you might have not heard used in this way before, but come from boxes that a lot of people use. all in an attempt to ddos your senses. havent really done a release like this, then again, i never thought id reappropriate grandmaster flash in such a perfect way in all my years of making music. so maybe you'll dig it too. not for everybody...but maybe its for you.
