Fliptrix releases SM58 from the much anticipated new album ‘Mantra No. 9’ set to drop next month.
SM58 sheds the more experimental layers and returns to a place of classic, foundational sound. This represents a growth in Fliptrix’s solo offerings. Given the sonic arc of the first four singles lifted from the album, ‘SM58’ feels like something of a curveball.
SM58 is a distinct change
SM58 features fellow High Focus label mates, Onoe Caponoe and Ramson Badbonez. The single reflects a distinct change in pace and fluctuation in mood. It channels a new set of energies that have (up to now) gone in a different direction.
Fliptrix knew’SM58’ was going to do what he hoped it would after performing it for the first time (at the same live show featured in the official video). With Onoe Caponoe and Ramson Badbonez in attendance; the crowd responded with insane energy to every verse. The same energy that Wundrop has perfectly captured, in the minimalist, low-frequency production that sees the track expertly traverse the ultra-fine line between orthodox and unorthodox.
