Here’s one Philadelphia act that’s taking the city by serious storm right now. Mr. Sampson returns with a brand new single from their upcoming The Gathering Storm EP, due for a February 27th release.
The track, “Weight of Time”, explores various aspects of music, both electronic and not, through a constantly evolving composition. Lead producer Joe Haederle’s proficiency with an extensive range of synthesizers, drumpads, and other equipment is not only undeniable, but it’s completely force-fed straight to you. “Weight of Time” enters on an energetic hip-hop line, led by some funky horn samples, but eventually fades into a dark, ambient mess of experimental noise. The track’s opening makes its return at the end, but not without undergoing a subtle transformation.
In addition to the new single, the duo also released a new video, which features segments of the new single, as well as an unreleased cover of Eliot Lipp‘s track “Yeah”. Check out both below.
