A single inspired by future bass and hyperpop, “BLONDE” is a track released today from Jess Jessica, a DJ and producer based in Fort Collins, CO. She has impressed previously with the tracks “Coming Up” and “JUST.””BLONDE” succeeds with its excitable structural development and effervescent rise.
A creaky, somewhat ominous swarming traverses into a snappy, industrial series of textures with a swelling vocal element. This particular vocal sample is masterfully manipulated throughout — “stretched, pitched, chopped,” — and compels in its construction of the track’s melodic direction. Further, an infectious burst of synth-driven melody and vocal expression culminates shortly past the one-minute mark. The pulsing 4/4 feel and syncopated textures converge for another invigorating electronic success from Jess Jessica.
This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2022’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Electronic.
