Drip Texted is all about the arpeggiated lead sound which pulsates to provide the tracks driving force.Whirling pads wrap around it to create drama and build suspense whilst the rest of the flowing percussionmoves with a steady momentum. Crisp and clean cut, the tracks haunting atmosphere craetes a chic andunderstated sound that still packs a punch.
X Possibilities has an uplifting synth line nestled amongst a dark backing track with crunching claps andother exposed percussion sounds layered over sub bass textures. The twisted modulation morphs the leadsynth creating new dynamics that are augmented by lush pads that shine a ray of light over this otherwiseshadowy track.
KAN3DAs remix of Drip Texted replaces the originals lead synth with an electro-tinged bassline heavilyinfluenced by the classic sound of Detroit. Keeping the originals atmospheric synths to give the track adystopian aesthetic, the tracks menacing vibe is bleak and captivating. Distinctly different from theoriginal, this version is raw and analogue.
