KhoMha’s track “Hydra” featured in the New Jason Statham Movie ‘Wild Card’


KhoMha’s song Hydra is featured in the new Lionsgate film ‘Wild Card‘ starring Jason Statham, Stanley TucciSofia Vergara and Jason Alexander. Here’s a synopsis of the movie:

Nick Wild (Jason Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a friend is beaten by a sadistic thug, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss. Suddenly Nick is plunged into the criminal underworld, chased by enforcers and wanted by the mob. Having raised the stakes, Nick has one last play to change his fortunes…and this time, it’s all or nothing.

The track “Hydra” begins dramatically with a build up which sounds like crowd horns from the World Cup, the drums continuously are staccato in doubles and triplets with the keyboards building into a crescendo until it explodes into a silky smooth, velvety pulsing rhythm.  The serene rhythm is interrupted with a boom and the song starts building with a psychedelic phasery rhythm sound and then transitions into the main hook of the song which is a beautiful hammer of triplets on the keyboards which makes you want to start dancing.

The hook fades away into a chill rhythm but not for long as the massive build up begins again which sounds like a jumbo jet screaming down a runway crossed with a wailing bomb siren  and a thudding bass drum.  The build creates more and more tension until a double bass drum fill smacks down and the main hook of the keyboards rises into the song, sounding like the namesake of the song itself–a mythological hydra, screaming and wailing away with sounds of beauty, making you want to jump up and dance as second rising keyboard builds the song to new levels of ecstasy.

KhoMha has taken his playing to yet another level with this track.  This song is definitely worth repeated listening and shows he is becoming a true master.

‘Wild Card’ will be out March 31st and available on Blu-Ray or DVD. Watch the movie now at select theaters or rent online:

New Release Review: KhoMha – Hydra E.P.

KhoMha remains as one of the most exciting new talents of dance music and the year 2013 will have provided the Colombian wonder with plenty of memories. The Hydra E.P. rounds off an incredible 12 months for Mr. Roberto Alzate Pasos. With several Coldharbour Nights before the year rounds out, he isn’t finished on his pursuit of ascension just yet.

“Hydra” is a good track from the get-go. With a nice initial build, this track goes into a minimal preview of the end of the track. The synth sound in particular is very  inspiring. It’s what I like to call a “hands up”  sound and after one listen you can understand why. The second build in this track is where it really started to happen for me. After the drop you can hear the original line from the first portion of the track with a big room sound added. Overall I would say this is a solid track by KhoMha.

The next track on E.P. is “Drummer”. This track is a very driving, with a sound that you just want to hear on an impressive festival sound system. Again, KhoMha impresses with another great mid line to this track. The musical engineering going on here is quite impressive. KhoMha makes musical masterpieces like this really come to life with his never-ending twists that will keep drawing you in for another listen. I have to admit, I listened to this track a few times and each time I heard something different that made the track better. I see this becoming the base for some great trance remixes.

Now on to the last track “Kadence”, which is one of my personal favorites on this E.P. From the beginning this track has festival and club written all over it. This is one of those tracks, that when played the crowd will just erupt. The first 60 seconds of this track is the definition of what a driving beat is. When the mid synth kicks in you can’t help but to smile when you here the magic happening in your ears. Once that drive is over, “Kadence” kicks back in with a similar beat as to the first minute but with a more hollowed out punching sound. I see this track becoming a staple at many festivals and clubs as a go to trance track.

This E.P. is perfect for every listener. No matter what you are looking for it can be found in the Hydra E.P. I played each of these tracks at my show last night and the crowd reaction was very good. The two tracks that seemed to hit it off the most was “Kadence” and “Drummer”.

Great job on the Hydra E.P. KhoMha!
