Boy in a Movie "Hauntéd"
- Words: Derek Kaneko
Taking on a variety of influences—which, unsurprisingly, includes film scores—British producer Boy in a Movie crafts a shadowy, loosely flowing hip-hop beat in the cinematic "Hauntéd." Boy in a Movie retools elements of Beyoncé's "Haunted," and transforms its already dark and forlorn vocals into a deep, spectral haze of melancholy verses. Brightly cascading synths, reverb-heavy hi-hats, and fuzzy static sounds also contribute to the piece's voluminous sound and ghostly aesthetic. The producer's knack for building rich atmospheres definitely isn't limited to this one-off freebie, and can be heard throughout his new, self-released Feel EP, which can be streamed in full after the jump.
