Known for his strong storytelling abilities and specialty for crafting otherworldly bass tunes, Draeden’s thematic style has immersed listeners with every release. The last we heard from the Montreal-based producer was his transformative remix of 12th Planet’s “Let It Bang.”
Not too long prior was the bass music community’s first taste of the astral-inspired artist in his debut four-track EP, Conquest. In this monstrous, film-ready body of work, Draeden delineated himself as a force to be reckoned with. Keeping with his cohesive branding Draden’s next chapter is proving himself as an “Arbiter.”
Bringing together elements of dubstep, trap, and classical music, “Arbiter” is a hybrid track fit for the big screen. It opens with ambient, soft piano and as violin is gradually brought into the mix, listeners are met with tension-building, booming bass lines. As it intensifies, in come the electrifying trap elements and a standout drop.
