Relentless Beat of the Week: Moody Good – ‘Crackshot’

London-based Moody Good, born Eddie Jefferys, crafts sonic sounds as eclectic as his project’s name. Each synth and snare are violently textured, jolting sound waves into activity and exercising crowd control over his audiences. His tastes are a robust blend of genres, including hip-hop and edgy dubstep, and often will bound between each without hesitation. His tracks aren’t lacking in attention to detail, however – his basslines are so meticulously crafted that there’s a distinct balance of clean and grimy. One recent example to behold is his recent collaboration with Leotrix manically titled “Crackshot.” Listen below to hear the Relentless Beat of the Week.

A favorite child of OWSLA, Moody Good hops over to the recently-launched GUD VIBRATIONS label for this explosive release. “Crackshot” whips sharply like a snapping towel to the face, unmuted and unforgiving in the sharpness of its design. It wobbles without being bogged of wet bass sounds, which allows it to be weightless and bounce around in its listener’s eardrum for a lasting effect. Moody Good avoids the “filthy” approach to dubstep and instead aggravates his music to a higher level.

Moody Good will be serving a steaming heap of dubstep on his Sunny Side Up tour, which includes a stop at AURA. Get your tickets for the January 11th show here.
