Bobby Draino "Brain Drain (Cloudface Edit)"
As the "pop-house" trend continues to grow and bring dance music to a different audience, those working with left-of-center sounds have more space to fill than ever. One such artist occupying that realm is Vancouver's Bobby Draino, whose previous work has generally been harsher than most of the offerings from LA label 100% Silk. Nevertheless, that didn't dissuade the imprint from issuing his recently released Brain Drain EP, which features Cloudface's edit of the title track. After a reverb-fueled intro, the fellow Canadian producer works the tune's dark, driving kick into a frenzy with the help of an acid-inflected melody and flickering, forceful hi-hats. It all makes for a stormy vibe with atmospheric elements that only swell larger and larger as the track progresses.
