Rising producer Poles stuns with emotive bass crossover, ‘Threw You’
There’s an emotive air to Pole’s contemporary dance track, “Threw You,” that sets it apart. The rising Magic Magic record label — founded by the Austin, TX electronic duo Bronze Whale — has shared a track with a keen knack of melding contemporary influences. Poles and co. radiate revolution.
Thanks to its collaborators, Jet Horns and Soft Jaws, “Threw You” taps into the insatiable emotive vein that’s running through post-EDM and the genre’s hip-hop crossover. Doleful male vocals lend comparisons to Post Malone, “But it’s still a pleasure talking to you/ Even though the knife in the back, ” and penultimate verses are drawn out with reverb, “Stabbing straight through.” Stinging listeners with its relatable sadness and rumbling bass resolution, “Threw You” begs repetition, if not for catharsis’ sake, than for its commanding production forte.
