Artist: Dom Barrows
Song: Look Alive
Based: New York
Stands out: Trance-inducing melodies
‘dom barrows’, formerly ‘lostboi’, is an artist from New York. His style is a kind of electronic minimal hip-hop fusion.
Fronted by some repetitive melodic vocals and backed by a warm sub bass, this song really gets in your head.
What we loved most about this track was the hypnotic melodies that put the listener into some kind of trance. The way that the song is written is very commercial in terms of rhyming and satisfying vocal patterns however, there is certainly an “indieness” to the production. It’s half trap/hip-hop and half electronic dance music.
