Imagine running through the crowds of a dark, frightening city, pushing bodies aside as you flee for your life. Imagine cradling someone close to you in a sleek nightclub filled with flashing lights and glow-in-the-dark body paint. Imagine sitting in an abandoned warehouse and triple checking your guns as you prepare to face the night and all its horrors.
Such are the landscapes inspired by “Brooding,” Rodney’s Warner latest addition to the trip-hop genre. Combining the rhythmic synths of electronica with a hip-hop bass that will pound the walls, this is a track for sinners and city dwellers, for mysterious strangers and everything that goes bump in the night. Its eerie echoes will raise goosebumps on your arms while its deep, throbbing pulse will bring to mind gothic romanticism and faceless shadows watching you from high windows.
Filled with tension, this striking track is perfect for a variety of projects. You might be making an urban film about gangs and gun control; you might be shooting your own fight club and searching for a soundtrack that complements bloody mouths and bruised knuckles.
Whatever the scene, one thing is for sure: If you’re looking for a song that will creep into your skin and stay there, something that’s equal parts epic, intense and spine-tingling, “Brooding” is your best bet for a hip-hop/techno ear worm.
