It's been nearly two years to the day that we said goodbye to Cookie Monsta, and even today his legacy continues to carry the torch of bass music forward.
A new record from Cookie Monsta arrived today by way of his home at Circus Records. Titled "I'm Delighted," the track is his first posthumous release and it's a collaboration with longtime friends Flux Pavilion and Koven.
The song features larger-than-life production from the formidable assembly of artists, enveloping Koven's heart-wrenching vocals in a sea of voluminous chords and soaring leads. The lyrics dig deep into the psyche innate in every human, putting the timeless struggle to quash destructive self-talk into words that few could so eloquently express.
Ultimately, the song's message is one of perseverance and putting on a brave face in uncertain times. Waves of synths crash over the lingering moments ending each cathartic verse, eventually building up into a grand finale driven by an equally powerful guitar solo. The epic scale and powerful subject matter will certainly be an enduring part of Cookie Monsta's ongoing legacy.
