Who I Am (Single)
Audiophile Deep Records
TBR: August 15th
Silent Revolt, well-known in Detroit and beyond for his home brand of beats and melody, takes to the Audiophile Deep workshop for the first time. This label debut cuts no corners, a massive track original plus two remixes from established luminaries makes sure music fans from all over will want to hear it. Aimed at being suitable to fill a void at any well-respected music party, Who I Am wants to be heard in three different ways to get full effect.
It begins on an easy-going house beat, reverberating with bass and snare. A hat sprinkles its metallic sheen across the top like a layer of icing. Then, a female vocal sample seductively speaks across the music, inviting a new layer of percussive melody in the form of a throbbing bass-line. On it goes, a grabbing rhythm pushes in and out with abstract clarity while various elements give rise to even more complimentary beats. Warbling notes bubble in bursting capsules of intent while the layers of rhythm swell and revolve across the spinning record. More bass now, a vibrant surge of notes in monotone match the pulsating drums.
The SIS Remix begins with chiming arpeggios. A sequence of notes across a chord structure repeat at a smooth tempo. Fast bass adds a new flavour, more upbeat and with a punchy glove in the composition, we're given a new dancing instinct. This time, the vocal is in reverse at first and it's deeper. The words are different, too. A variation in emotive direction brings out a new colour to the music, the repeating chimes matching talkative hand-drum beats while swerving synths administer their tones. Snare and bass wriggle in under the covers to give the backbone a new sense of strength. Vertebrae of percussion snake along the impactful groove. The track holds a greater sense of progressiveness with the flow and tide of mixing.
Finally, we're given a spacious and airy melody. Stretched out tones over-lap each other while segments of drum fill the spaces. Extra bounce is given to some of the percussion and bass, fizzing into astrid escapism, the minimal yet intense offering sparks like a bare wire. We're drawn back to the sultry vocal again, this time a new element is added to its expression. Up and down notes on tapping electronic drums swell in a bass led froth. Then muffled tones begin to twinkle like stars in a planetarium, too close to be real yet magical in their own right. A more mysterious and abstract quality is stitched into this HearThug 5am Mix, something for the dark room perhaps?
