Showcases a mastery of the nexus between sampled percussion and warm, arpeggiated synth tones.

For Vancouver's IDM artist Cloud Opacity, everything is about layers. "Bring to Front" is his latest drop, and makes direct reference to the idea of layering — bringing different elements and accents to the front, and sending others to the back — just like in graphic software programs.

Cloud Opacity makes 'irregular, introverted, and intimate music' for lovers of instrumental experimentation mixed with downtempo groove. "Bring to Front" showcases a mastery of the nexus between sampled percussion and warm, arpeggiated synth tones. Cloud Opacity is a relatively new artist to the Glitch/IDM scene, with only a handful of singles so far. Go ahead and give him some love on Spotify — his music is a welcome and lively alternative to the spaced-out musing of others artists in this space.
