Since his split with Krewella, Rain Man has steadily been establishing himself as a solid solo act. Songs like “Bring Back The Summer” and “Habit” saw the producer moving past his dubstep and electro roots to embrace a more pop-friendly sound. Now, in what might be an attempt to capitalize on the hype surround the upcoming film Kong: Skull Island, Rain Man is back with a new single this week titled “King Kong.” His latest release arrives as a pummeling dubstep tune featuring Fiyah Fiyah and Cinélu.
“King Kong” kicks off with an ominous introduction, driven by punchy beats and hype vocals courtesy of Cinélu. After an intense buildup, Rain Man takes us into the drop with spastic, stuttering bass rhythms and powerful half time drum patterns. Taking influence from heavy metal, “King Kong” moves into a pseudo-guitar solo after the first drop before concluding with an electrifying four on the floor section.
While it was wise of Rain Man to branch out his sound for a few releases following his departure from Krewella, “King Kong” is sure to satisfy fans who yearned for more bass heavy material from him. The producer doesn’t hold back any punches on the new single, filling the mix with a scorching low end and dancefloor ready rhythms.
“King Kong” is available now and can be purchased here.
