Ever wonder what Kesha mixed with Lincoln Park might sound like? Possibly not, but you will get your answer if you listen to the recent self-titled EP Electricomplex by Electricomplex. Electricomplex is a solo female producer and singer from Tampa who has some serious skills. There is very little she doesn’t do on this EP. In fact I am wondering if anyone else is even involved in making her EP. The music is made to be played in clubs, pre-gaming at someone’s house before your night out or at a house party. It’s most likely not going to be something you are going to want to pop in if you want to get some work done of go to sleep.
Electricomplex is a hybrid rapper/singer who melds electronic, rock, hip-hop and even a hint of industrial into her music. When she spits rhymes she is in control dictating the pace of the song and when she is singing it’s usually poppy melodies that are bound to get stuck in your head. On top of that there is a lot of originality with her music that comes through as well.
The first track “Lions + Cages” implements distorted guitars with a programmed beat that sounds somewhere between Sleigh Bells and Lincoln Park. She rhymes over the beat and when the hook comes she throws down a memorable melody that establishes she has the ability to write a pop song.
“Faded Stars and Cheap Models” is a solid song where the production sounds similar to something you might have heard from Missy Elliott a couple of years back. She implements a number of savvy production techniques that are bound to get her style compared to some of the most prominent producers in the biz. “High Class Dreams” further demonstrates her originality but here she is implementing sounds you might imagine being on a Nine Inch Nails record while the closer “Never Given Enough” is a fast-paced lyrically heavy song that feels like an onslaught of words and sounds.
Electricomplex isn’t a carbon copy of the endless slew of producers who sound like everything else out there. Even though her music can draw comparison to other artists she brings her own personality and style to the songs.
