Atlanta is in the building with Modern Measure’s remix of Georgia hip hop icon Big Boi’s song, “Kryptonite”.
Also cutting their teeth in the great city of Atlanta, Georgia – Kyle Holly (drums, production) and Charlie Thornton (bass, production) joined forces in 2013 to create the livetronic tour de force known as Modern Measure.
After quickly rising through the ranks of the city’s music scene, in the last two years they’ve gone on to play festivals including CounterPoint, North Coast, Suwannee Hulaween, Euphoria, Atlanta 4/20 Festival, Summer Camp Music Festival, and more.
Bands don’t get these chances by accident, Modern Measure has earned it with each and every righteous performance.
With a sound that treads the line between electronic and organic music, it’s easy to see why Modern Measure is a on STS9’s 1320 Records. Fusing elements of glitch, trap, and hip hop with proper quantities of bass – Modern Measure’s slick sound is destined for livetronic glory.
In that regard, their remix of Big Boi’s “Kryptonite” is the perfect introduction to the group’s incendiary sound. Starting with a shimmering sound and smooth drum beat, Big Boi’s vocals soon work into the mix to add extra flavor to the track.
After building to the 1:10 mark, “Kryptonite” falls into a smooth groove that sounds perfectly at home in Project Aspect, Manic Focus, or Gladkill’s arsenals.
With seamless production skill, Modern Measure flows the track into heavier spaces by tossing in funky guttural bass lines to drive the song. Building “Kryptonite” further still, the track hits its cathartic peak at the 3:00 point.
If you haven’t checked out Modern Measure, don’t pass this duo up. With an incredible sound that incorporates elements both electronic and organic music – Modern Measure creates a sound that’s uniquely them. With Modern Measure sharing the same team as artists such as Big Gigantic, The Floozies, Manic Focus, and other top acts – expect big things from Modern Measure in 2015 and beyond.
