Chicago’s @iamSnowmass returns with stunning, progressive original “Crossfire” featuring L.A.-based @MonaMoua

SNØWMASS featuring MONA MOUA, “Crossfire” (free DL)

Regular readers of this blog know about my admiration for Chicago producer/remixer Snøwmass through his fascinating, mysterious, and sometimes pretty down ‘n dirty remixes of songs by the likes of Canadians Sterling Grove and Ellyn Woods (“Sound Of Home”), as well as Cut Snake (“Echo”) and Convex & Titus (“Bad Kids”). 

For the last several months, Snøwmass has been off social media and hard at work on a full album which he will release soon with the strange title of Amongst An Acid Wolfpack, and the first taste from it is “Crossfire”, featuring L.A.-based singer Mona Moua. 

“Crossfire”, simply said, is like none of Snøwmass’ remixes.  I would pitch it more to fans of fellow producer Crywolf’s originals as progressive electronic music with classic rock music at its base, perhaps with some classical melodic influence added.  The song is full of different moods and movements, with the beginning of “Crossfire” not leading to a place that you think you’d be at the end.  What throws the song into play big time is what sounds like an awkward transition at around 1:20 that ends up as one of the most memorable parts of the song.  Mona Moua’s vocal is perfect for “Crossfire”, soothing in the quiet that surrounds the dramatic, aggressive instrumental segments.  

“Crossfire” is definitely a huge, dynamic introduction to the next phase of Snøwmass which may catch listeners off guard.  It requires close listens and multiple plays, and will certainly prepare you for what Snøwmass has to offer next.  At the link above, you can dive in and get it as a free download while you can.
