Barely gracing three minutes in length but boldly immersive in its vast, enveloping sound-design and quickly addictive energy – ABSA fuses industrial rhythms and gritty, fragmented EDM for an explosively haunting Like This.
Leaning towards hip hop during the second of three parts to the story, Like This follows a dirty dubstep introduction through distortion and weight, towards space and vocal intricacies, into the ultimate power of the final third’s drop.
Here we get that late-night electronic dance hit of sound-play and beautiful chaos. The details, the layers, the rhythms, the samples and intensity of it all – the whole thing wraps itself around the listener, quickly prompting a volume increase and effectively drawing you in for a revisit almost instantly as the music finishes.
Brilliantly unexpected, familiar yet fresh, and far too brief. Enjoy streaming this one a few times over.
