Genres tend to come and go in popularity, and the complextro sensibilities of the later 2000’s are just waiting to have another moment in the sun. Championed by the likes of Wolfgang Gartner, Knife Party, and Porter Robinson’s early output, house music’s multi-layered offshoot is primed for another breakout moment, and producers like PrototypeRaptor will be there to set it all off. The veteran Texas-based DJ has steadily built a lengthy catalog of blistering complextro compositions, with his latest drop, “Midnight Hour,” falling right in line, available now via Tasty.
The track features rousing, syncopated vocals ahead of a barrage of growling synth arrangements and snappy percussion breakdowns. Reminiscent of a different time for dance floors, when electro house reigned supreme, PrototypeRaptor delivers a blast from the last decade’s popular dance trends with his own fresh spin on his latest, “Midnight Hour.”
