KAI WACHI and DYLAN MATTHEW, “Run”
Idaho-based electronic producer Kai Wachi is someone you may have encountered either performing at a big festival or supporting Black Tiger Sex Machine on tour. His latest single, “Run”, mixes earnest sadness with aggressive release, culminating in a fierce synth breakdown at around the three-quarter mark. He co-wrote the song with singer Dylan Matthew, whose name you will associate with songs particularly by Slander, but he’s also worked with Seven Lions, Crystal Skies, and Dabin among others. “Run” is a pretty sad and angry breakup song that taps into a genuineness which the electronic dubstep genre of current artists seem to find inside a treasure trove of emotions for their fans. “Run” is also pretty accessible for those not looking for anything too heavy, but there’s still lots for long-time fans to enjoy as well.
