Jason has teamed up once again with his Grammy award winning brother, producer Cassidy Turbin (Beck, Bat for Lashes, Thurston Moore), with the track also featuring guest vocalist Amber Quintero (Stone Throw Records). The Darkness is a macabre, melodic synth-infused track, influenced by elements of classic hip hop with a twist of modern electro-pop thrown in for good measure; conjuring similarities to artists such as Metronomy and M83.
The Darkness is the follow up to Cadence Kid’s critically acclaimed single Hold On Me, which was featured on Billboard’s Top 50 Viral Playlist as well as Spotify’s Fresh Finds playlist. Since his childhood, Jason has performed lead roles in musicals such as Les Miserables as well as orchestrating for renowned prog-metal band Dream Theater and, most recently, the upcoming movie Ouija 2.
Cadence Kid is a whirlwind of musical talent with a keen ear for an undeniably catchy beat, as well as an ability to turn his hand to various genres and art forms within the industry. The Darkness further emphasises this fact, showcasing his burgeoning talents in the process, and will serve as a perfect end to 2016.
The Darkness by Cadence Kid is released on 28th October 2016 via My Music Mind.
