mdnt just dropped this new single “Dreamcatcher,” produced by Smarterchild (Rick Markowitz) and rhymed over by Jez Dior. Not only is it a great track, but we get to premiere it!
It’s probably easiest to categorize the sound as part of the rising of the “neo-soul” genre, which is defined by soulful vocals layered over progressive electronic music. That, and pop. Either way, it makes for the perfect combination of sounds.
According to mdnt, a lot went into composing this song and pulling together the accompanying video, particularly the recent passing of his grandfather:
My entire life I have been compared to all his positive attributes. He was a brilliant man, but he also possessed a deep well of dark traits that ostracized him from the family and contributed to his death. I had always wanted to talk with him, with the hope that understanding him would help me avoid or control the darker parts that I may possess as well. The video takes my initial insecurities about possessing the dark parts of my grandfather and manifests them in the masked figure terrorizing both Jez and myself.
Catch the video below, and keep posted for future collaborations from this trio — something tells us they’ve got more material up their sleeves!
