Mind Flay kicks off by promising to “Take You Higher,” and the invigorating opening track does just that.
Ear-splitting bass melodies layered above trap-infused beats lay the foundation for “Take You Higher,” accompanied by fun vocal samples that give the track a lively atmosphere and perfectly complement its gnarly instrumentation. I’m anticipating that this one will be heard in sets from bass artists across the board.
“Headshot” maintains the gripping energy of the EP’s teaser track, but puts a new spin on it all the same. BRUER once again brings a trap influence with potent 808s that merge seamlessly with rippling synth patterns and in-your-face bass. It’s dizzying but in the best way, emulating a similar feeling to being on a roller coaster ride. This track is visceral to its core.
BRUER brings it all home with “What You Want,” an intoxicating experimental track that takes everything great about this EP, wraps it up into a package, and puts a shiny bow on top. Feisty trap beats and shrill bass melodies embody the majority of this track, accompanied as well by a taste of drum and bass that takes the track up a notch. It’s sure to blow out your speakers in case the first three tracks didn’t somehow do so already.
The diverse production, multifaceted instrumental elements, and overall ferocity of Mind Flay is tangible proof of BRUER’s musical genius. It’s clear that this Denver native is ready and able to grab the bass music bull by its horns, and rightfully so.
