“Mercy” is a collaborative track from two of contemporary underground electronic music’s most creative producers, Joy Orbison and Boddika. It’s not the first time they’ve put a track together, and I’m hoping it won’t be the last after getting exposed to the mutated bass and choppy vocal cuts on this track.
The groove on this thing is absolutely nasty, and it’s made nastier by this incessant and odd bassline. The sound resembles that of smacking a PVC pipe with a bat, or doing something strange with a long sting of piano wire.
The sounds are really something else, and the rhythms are always in a state of flux as well. This track is loaded with top-notch textures and detail. Grab “Mercy” and the other track on this single, “Froth,” here.
