Stats for this track
Fresh from his EP on Sinden's Grizzly label, New York based Brenmar showcases 3 melancholy club tracks on his Hum + Buzz release, along with a special MikeQ remix. 'Let's Pretend' kicks off proceedings with tantalising vocals coupled with effortless lead synths and rolling bass and drums, an R'n'B via UK Funky track strictly aimed at the dancefloor. Taking you on a 'bumpy ride' but utilising the same vibe, 'Temperature Rising' combines yearning vocals, bouncy, fluctuating rhythms and undulating arpeggios. It's like a melancholy booty track, with the same intentions of making you pop and sweat.
'Done (Don't Luv Me No More)' pushes the tempo up, but also stays relevant to Brenmar's R'n'B influences, the result is a luscious display of glassy synth pads, pensive vocals and twitching anxious, unstable drum rhythms. Finally, the MikeQ remix strips the original right back, switching between soca-esque snares and cowbells to half-step claps, creating a deadly accomplice. A fitting encore to this wistful dancefloor
