Gud Vibrations drops another banger for all the lovers of cutting-edge Melodic Trap & Wave music. The new Deadlyft song Lift Me Up is a heartfelt and expressive springy ballad that sounds like an ode to the awakening of the nature.
The song is dense enough to be a party anthem but at the same time, it’s constantly progressing, making it a joyful experience to explore as an active listener. By choosing the uplifting, soulful sample as its main refrain, the new Deadlyft song burns all the bridges that may lead to moodiness or negativity. With Lift me Up, Deadlyft once again proves that he’s a producer that stays in touch with his inner child. The structure is unstable and chaotic, but in a good way. It’s a playful song that is brave enough to experiment, but, thanks to the skillfulness of the producer, never sounds like it’s trying too hard.
Starting off with plain vocal samples, a toned-down synth arpeggio and wobbly pads, it quickly jumps into a cheerful melodic buildup with a wonky synth, characteristic of Melodic Trap & Wave music. As this melody progresses, the Trap drum pattern intensifies, lifting the track to its emotional peak before the drop. Although, the term “drop” doesn’t precisely illustrate what’s going on here. The best way to describe it is to say that the section feels like a transition to the next imaginary space which is neither lower, nor higher than what we’ve already experienced.
It consists of two sequences tied together with the use of massive kick drums. One is a swinging sonic hurricane with rhythmic noises, 808s and spatial manipulations, and the other is an impactful stomping drum pattern that feels like a herd of elephants marching towards you. And each of those, along with the other parts of the track, are sprinkled with tons of details: from piano chords to creative delays, tiny synth melodies and all kinds of noises. Lift Me Up is a treasure chest that hides surprises for all kinds of Wave music fans out there. If you’re interested in fresh, innovative, and uplifting EDM, then you should keep an eye on this Philadelphia-based producer.
