Halloween is upon us as we begin October, where we can expect all types of darkness in remixes and mixtape and original mixes, oh my. But Ghastly is a name that carries over it a dark cloud every month of the year, bringing us 12 months solid of ghoulish music that terrifies us with enthrallment, like that of a good scary movie or a roller coaster ride.
His latest track, ‘Get On This,’ certainly has its ups and downs, just like a coaster. It winds up with an entrancing bass line that hypnotizes you so that you can’t see what is coming next. And then, Ghastly really lives up to the definition of his name, because the first drop shocks to the core. From there it is just full on madness. Mad Decent dares listeners to try and pocket this track into a genre, but like the rest of ghastly’s horrifying yet simultaneously pleasing-to-the ear sound, this is an impossible task. Sounds like these cannot be contained in the constraints of genre. They transcend such things. Just as Ghastly as an artist transcends all that has been done before him. He has a unique and inspiring story, has come from nothing to be one of the hottest new producers in dance music, and we are behind him all the way as he continues this journey to the top.
This is a perfectly orchestrated track, epitomizing Ghastly and his music. He is amongst an elite group of revolutionary new artists with a new sound that reminds us what it feels like to have our faces melted. And reminiscent of, ‘Bangarang,’ eating fun dip not givin’ a fuuuuuhhhhh, the sound byte that closes out the track is a v nice touch.
