Back to Back in Blue - up next we've got none other than bLiNd, aka Jordan Aguirre, with some hard-hitting electronica. The way the undulating, elastic bassline here slowly ascends & descends in pitch is completely sick, and the technique is extended later in the mix as synth motifs osillate slowly over the rock-solid beat and vocal perc. fx, with delayed synth stabs, sci-fi whirlygigs, atmospheric doodads, etc. all creating an expansive, electrified tension. Listen to the DSP/reverb modulation around 1'25", where it grows outwards then gets tucked right back in & tightens up at 1'31" - great example of playing with ambience to achieve a build. I'm not as sure on the key change @ 2'02", but the source is relatively sparse so this was definitely one way to extract a bit more duration out of it.
While both arrangement and production are both up to Jordan's high standards, ultimately this is a mix that employs a specific effect, and employs it well, and that's what makes it memorable and persuasive. The gradually rising & falling pitch of the bass (and later some of the accompanying synths) not only delivers on & explains the title, it creates this uneasy, massive ebb & flow that sounds like the slow-motion doppler effect of a passing star cruiser. I'm sure it's been done before, somewhere, in other electronica tracks, but this is the first time I've heard it in a mix, and Jordan's skill in making it a legitimate focal point and not just a gimmick is what carries the track. Airtight, intense, unsettling work from bLiNd!
