Teaming up to create “GAOBEAR,” Dutch producer Ganz (aka Jordy Saämena) and Dutch rapper Dusty manage to meld emotionally evocative lyrics with a club-ready beat. Director Robin Zom’s video successfully reinforces these themes, depicting Dusty’s feelings of anguish in an array of perplexing and esoteric scenes. Mixing heavy bass with moments of sparsity that allow Dusty’s lyrics to come to the forefront, GANZ experiments with a number of unexpected sounds and samples that elevate the complexity of the track. Ganz will soon be heading out on tour with Keys N Krates, and “GAOBEAR” is off his upcoming GAO EP. Watch below.
