Fytch, Captain Crunch and Carmen Forbes release Raindrops

It usually takes a little time for producers to get their heads around songs. But not Fytch. At just 16 he’s come up with the kind of songs others haven’t got near after years in the game. Alongside Captain Crunch and incredible singer of the same age Carmen Forbes they have come together to produce one of best tracks this summer will hear – Raindrops.

It’s a resounding, fluxion of orchestral pop snares, milky vocals and bass hysteria that is uplifting as it’s memorable. DC Breaks capture the charm of the original and incense it with skyrocketing whirring bass and swirling, buoyant beats that sound combined like a tropical thunderstorm at the peak of its powers. Flinch, makes it rain literally on the outset remix with a 16-bit bleating, sub level affair in the vein of Rusko whilst Dead Audio provide the bass-heavy mix which is most favoured by Borgore in his current festival sets.

And incredibly, singer Carmen Forbes is also 16 years old. Together with London dubstep master Captain Crunch – 2011 Best Breakthrough Dubstep DJ, no less – the Dutch duo have crafted something beautiful from the clash of a classic vocal with operatic flourishes and twisted dubstep keys. The record has already had support from Skream and Mistajam on BBC Radio 1 and Capital FM’s Andi Durrant.

Originally released on Israeli bass DJ/producer supremo Borgore’s Buygore imprint, Raindrops now gets a full release on Strictly Rhythm with new mixes from Flinch, Dead Audio and a storming drum and bass retune by DC Breaks.
