In a flurry of ethereal synth arpeggios and intriguing samples, “One Of Them” immediately catches the listener’s attention. Setting the tone with an ominous vibe, recording artists BLKBRST and HIGHSOCIETY craft a suspenseful build-up, giving the release a sense of urgency. The drop is a firestorm of pumping gritty bass and driving grooves, reminiscent of acts like k?d, Rezz, and Black Tiger Sex Machine. The combination of punishing and melodic elements gives the track a sense of contrast and individuality.
“One Of Them,” with its unrelenting energy, is sure to ignite floors, arenas, and headphones alike. BLKBRST on working with HIGHSOCIETY:
“I met James (HIGHSOCIETY) through a mutual friend when I was living in California and kept in touch once I left, we never had the chance to sit down and write a track together but he is very talented and I always wanted to collaborate with him. We have bounced tracks back and forth giving each other feedback on them, and I ended up sending him this one, and he got back to me instantly, We were both super stoked on the drops that I had written but the intro and some other parts needed work. James jumped on the opportunity and wrote a crazy intro and breaks, and that dope post drop nod to them. This track was a huge learning step for me and I am incredibly grateful to have been able to work with him on it.”
HIGHSOCIETY on BLKBRST genius musical sound:
“I have been watching my friend BLKBRST grow in his career over the last year or so, and when he sent me the demo for this song, I thought I could help take it to the next level. I liked the vibe of the drops but thought it needed more of an identity so I incorporated some of my favorite futuristic/sci-fi vibes. I am a firm believer in helping to lift up newer artists so I’m happy to be contributing to BLKBRST’s world domination!”
