Besomorph’s slap house touch stays golden on ‘Holy Water,’ with Lucifer and Mary Jensen
An aesthetic leader of the Brazilian bass/slap house brand of sound that’s had streamers in a chokehold since its relatively recent vault into the mainstream, Lucifer, the Mary Jensen-vocalized cut adds to Besomorph’s staggering catalog; since 2019, the Los Angeles-anchored act has directed a combined total of 39 originals and remixes to streaming platforms. Working at a prolific pace, albeit at no compromise to caliber, Besomorph’s enduring capacity to craft earworms with commercial club appeal is audible on “Holy Water,” the direct successor to March’s “Blessed” with M.I.M.E. and 2Scratch. Besomorph, who’s graced various Spotify playlists, including “Hype,” “Main Stage,” “Bass Arcade,” and “New Music Friday,” emerges as a natural must-stream for listeners who gravitate toward the slap house genre. Imanbek, Regard, and even Loud Luxury listeners just might find a new favorite in Besomorph, whose latest effort is now streaming below.
