Abrahaam, one of the most exciting French freshmen in Bass music, unleashes Genesis, a dark & epic orchestral Midtempo Bass track with biblical scales and voltaic low-end. Released via the Paris-based outlet Belles Choses Musique, the new Abrahaam song comes with a huge focus on stylistics and polished sound.
Genesis has a pretty diverse range of influences. Being essentially a Midtempo Bass track, it borrows many of those from Industrial House, but the dark & epic orchestral touch gives the music a flair that makes it sound like a complete independent branch of the subgenre. And, as might be expected, it’s a kind of orchestration that one can hardly call “subtle”. In fact, the saturation with organic sounds on Genesis is so apparent, that during some moments of the new Abrahaam & Belles Choses Musique song it’s hard to tell whether it’s an Orchestral piece with Electronic influences, or vice-versa.
Genesis opens with a short string-section, the lushness and width of which immediately set the tone for the track. After this short intro, it bursts open with an electrifying Industrial rhythm-section, through which the angelic choir, completely smashed by compression, signifies the first stage of the clash between electronic and organic sounds on Genesis. Despite that it’s only the first part of the 3-minute journey, Abrahaam’s new song already feels huge at that point.
But the French producer keeps making Genesis bigger and bigger. As the initial groove continues its relentless march, the foundational bass and choir get aided by huge horn-sections, string-arpeggios, and even more synths and percussion. Astonishingly enough, the song doesn’t get buried under its own weight, and the level of intensity completely corresponds with the amount of layers and instruments branching out after almost every bar of Abrahaam’s new song.
