I’m starting to get tired of electronic songs with a “drop.” The drop is typically not as exciting as I tend to hope it will be, and a lot of basslines in remixes don’t really mesh with the original track. Of course, that’s just one guy’s opinion, but when someone like Minnesota comes around with a great melodic piece like “Breathe,” it’s pretty easy to remember why I still enjoy dubstep.
Minnesota’s composition style on “Breathe” reminds me a lot of NiT GriT. Both producers rely heavily on the introduction of new layers throughout the course of the track to ultimately create a melodic peak that really tickles the ear drums. There’s a faint whistle sound that feels a little out of place to me, but I’m thoroughly impressed with Minnesota’s production on the whole.
