DRIPMOB - ESQUECEU
This is fucking gorgeous.
Artfully crafted, the best track of the week is by far ESQUECEU, a collab between DRIPMOB and Slimburn.
As always, I recommend listening while reading this piece.
ESQUECEU roughly translated by me, an amateur with access to google, means forgotten, and it is in a market of complex, effervescent ambience that ESQUECEU has a powerful impact. Within the piece, DRIPMOB and Slimburn have crafted a well-balanced and delicate intensity, that is borderline masterful. Music's top charts are dominated by songs that deal with powerful themes such as lust, jealousy, and pride, yet the oversaturation of these themes and the heavy-handed composition has left many listeners numb to the catharsis we intend to experience by consuming art. By contrast, "Forgotten" is a state of being that tends to slip by the wayside. It's not overtly sexy, nor is it depressive or uplifting...it's a state difficult to communicate and experience. Here, DRIPMOB and Slimburn capture the moment, full of intrigue and dynamic sound.
Aside from the production quality, I find myself fascinated by the construction of the track. The forward momentum is driven by a haunting sample, and bouncy kicks synced to a downright sensual ambience. And that's what makes this track so special--it's forward momentum. The track builds and drops, maintaining tension and flow that leaves the listener in a delicate trance.
THE BOTTOM LINE
Catharsis is a human need. The delicacy and tension of this track is gorgeous to say the least, and sensual in its release.
