Blossoming Australian DJ and producer Lucille Croft has dropped the curtain on her new single "Control," a blistering bass tune that plunges its listeners into a rabbit hole with its haunting motif of mind control.
In something that sounds like it was plucked straight out of a Blade film, "Control" is midtempo mayhem. Croft's own alluring vocals are at the forefront here, moonlighting as a siren song that beckons listeners into a rip-roaring 100BPM drop brimming with electro gravitas. With its metallic sound design and relentless energy, "Control" marries the sonic verve of an industrial Boys Noize track with the ferocity of a REZZ release to deliver a nasty bass tune from the depths of a dystopian dungeon.
However, what renders "Control" a needle in the midtempo haystack is its forward-thinking second drop. Croft goes a more minimal route, imbuing tension with spacey sound design and eerie yet vicious bass patches, which serve well to bring the track home.
