One of Toronto's fastest rising stars, Stéphane Deschênes aka Damn Kids has been pumping out some of the most mind- bending productions in the game today. For the past couple of months now, this burgeoning talent has been on radar, particularly because his productions showcase a wide range of styles under the universal laws of bass music.
His latest, "Absalom" is one for the dance floor. We usually don't do this, but the track has been so eloquently described by his reps that we had to share with you. Here's what they had to say -
"Rolling drums introduce Absalom with rising percussion before wayfaring into a build up filled with synth and sub bass layering that you wouldn’t expect from the man who traditionally avoids standard production terms such as ‘melody’. An overdriven kick that will literally pummel systems forges the drop where stabbed out synth percussion shows the trademark Damn Kids production technique, as synths blend into pitched vocal chop arrangements and fast hitting horns. Break 2 reverts to the initial builds pace, and motions up towards to a snare roll that evidently reveals that a trapped out drop is imminent, featuring large 808 kick drums, sharp hi hats and snare rolls to round Absalom out nicely."
