Electronic artist Rahm makes exciting, ambitious pop music that sounds years ahead of its time. One-fourth of Brooklyn band altopalo, Rahm debuted his solo project earlier this year with a surreal remix of Desiigner‘s “Timmy Turner,” featuring his own vocals covering the eponymous 2016 hook. His first single “Wet Words” released via Brooklyn label Terrible Records last month, an intense four-minute track showcasing powerful vocals and violent, distressing beats.
On his newest offering, “Fault,” Rahm continues to manipulate the pop form with challenging beats. He delivers precise, clever hooks over a production that’s rampant and wildly unpredictable. The effect’s disorienting, at first, but ultimately beguiling. It’s a track that demands to be played again.
