Brenmar "Back Beating"
- Words: Patric Fallon
This internet exclusive comes to us courtesy of Brooklyn's Brenmar and a snippet of what sounds like fellow New Yorker Beyonce. The diva's sampled voice provides the track with a repetitive—but not tiresome—hook that proclaims the song title over a buoyant house rhythm and bulbous bassline. The meat of "Back Beating" is eventually joined with an elastic lead synth and some melodic stabs, making for a tune that is quite solid in its altogether straightforwardness and not-so-flashy aesthetic. Take this one to the club with you while you wait for Brenmar's upcoming four-song EP—which includes remixes from Ikonika & Optimum and DJ Rashad—to be released in late October on Discobelle.
