Rabid Mastiff. That’s a slightly unsettling image isn’t it? Brooklyn based producer Fifty Grand has recently released her second LP, Aural Sects, through her BANDCAMP, and on it, is this heavily synthesized piece of art for your ears entitled, Rabid Mastiff. From the moment I clicked play on this one something about the song drew me in. Is it because of the push and pull feel you get from the thick synth line? Or is it was trapped out drums that follow the beautiful piano melody? Is it the erie vibe that keeps you in a trance? I think it’s a combination of all of the above, plus a little extra touch called love thrown into the mix. You can tell when an artists loves what they do. Fifty Grand has done just that. She carries a unique and very deep emotional sound with her music that you can feel in your heart. She’ll be an artist to keep an eye out for over the next few years!
