FANGS, or Danny D’Brito fame, has conjured up an absurdly wicked single and accompanying music video in “Murder” — appropriately released on Halloween day. “Murder” sets FANGS’ identity as a talent, with the musician incorporating bouncy synth progressions, chunky basslines, and drum patterns into a satisfying mix. That said, “Murder” samples the classic Damian Marley piece the same name, and this adds a creepy edge to the overall effect when pitched down to match the track’s undertones.
“Murder’s” music video is equally cunning. Set in FANGS’ home base LA, the plot follows along a man who sets out to commit murder that later ends up as the prey his target. As FANGS’ first ficial release as a solo act, the record and its stunning visuals are primed to shoot him into tech house nobility at an expeditious rate.
