Album, song and event reviews, mixtapes, and radio shows, light the way to Enlightenment, conveyed by Oggie James.
Four months and six remixes since the original release of Hoodboi's prolific track "Closer" featuring ASTR, the well rounded producer has reconfigured his own creation, into an super charged, upbeat and retro racing arcade game. The best part of this game is there's no charge to play, it's a free download!
The chopped and cut vocals work incredibly well as the track gains steam with an eighties-esque, old school loading screen vibe, before blasting off like a strobe-light. Driving at such a blistering tempo, the track feels like one long blazing drop, whipping your hair back as the synths scream by. "Closer" feels comfortable as ASTR's full lyrics come in, lulling you into a false sense of security before the effects take over, as the vehicle charges in preparation for a final explosive maneuver. The concluding drop is the culmination of all aspects of "Closer." Hoodboi shreds the synth like a savant, weaving his way into our hearts, with his solicitous soundtrack. Magically matching the lyrics, the "Moonrise" mix will have "lightning in you eyes" as you "race the night."
