Mau5 v Crystal Method (?)
44 / 5
After the first mau5ville EP where Joel more or less admits he feels like a slave to his fanbase that he has little to no respect for and is trapped by a brand he can't beat or outpace, he created 'Drama Free'. This track is the first piece he's created in a long time that feels like something original. It's almost dripping with Crystal Method's sense of intensity and swagger back when their album 'Vegas' was still a thing. It carries a sense of cinematic action. In short the rest of the album is fairly 'take it or leave it', but pick up Drama Free if you actually care about this guy forging a new sound for himself and venturing in new directions. Don't be lame, just give it a listen.
