Everybody’s favorite partying apparition is back and this time he’s kicking it electro-house style. Party Ghost aka Chris Mehrtash has been away from the scene for sometime, doing who knows what. Seriously though, we have no idea. Do you?
After falling head over heels for Chris’ remix to the absolutely huge single “Safe and Sound” by indie pop rockers Capital Cities, we were convinced of the talents possessed by this young producer. Since then, Party Ghost had released his very first single for Spinnin’ Records titled “On My Way” but then, ironically, it seemed Mr. Mehrtash had taken some time off. We are not sure of the specific reason, perhaps he was completing a tour. Either way, he’s back!
Party Ghost’s new jam is indicative of many electro songs we have heard before with one glaring exception. We have pointed this fact out before when reviewing Chris’ music but we might as well shed some more light on the peculiar arrangement that accompanies his songs. Instead of adhering to a typical compositional technique, Party Ghost has once again gone against the grain. Like your average EDM track, “Static” includes both an intro, outro and a break. But, this latest release features three disctinct sections: intro, build, drop | bridge, build, drop | bridge, build, drop, outro.
Needless to say, there is A LOT going on here and it ALL sounds great to us.
