It’s no secret that I love Celtic music–with a name like Robbie Ferguson I darned-well better–and TheFatRat seems to have some Celtic spirit in him too.
It’s also no secret that while I’ve never been a big gamer, I absolutely adore the nostalgia of retro video games, and TheFatRat again appeals to this love with some synth riffs that take me back to chiptunes of the 80s.
Simply put, this song puts a giant grin on my bald face.
Some tracks just demand my player warning of permanent hearing damage, and this is one of them. When the bass comes in and my eardrums tingle, I know I’m where I want to be.
That beat drop at 1:24 and subsequent synth squelches makes me excited to be alive. And her voice… oh, her voice. Wayward Daughter shows us why Vocal Dubstep is the genre of choice for those of us who love and appreciate true melodic dubstep and talented vocal chops.
Gareth brings in the synth with old school frequency envelopes that seamlessly meld 2017 with 1998.
