Brendan Lange is a Florida-based EDM producer and game developer. Under the name Proph3t of Rag3, the artist’s focus on engaging sonic textures and a complementary visual component contribute to his distinction within the scene. From his initial output of 2021, Lange has released his fourth single, “Venom,” featuring up-and-coming rock singer/songwriter Samantha Bower.
Much like his previous material, Lange’s signature take on dubstep – what he refers to as ‘darkstep’ – plays a part in complementing the single’s cover art. The cave-like accents on the percussion are an immediate factor, while the synth layers emit a kind of presence that stands on its own – both in the verse arrangements and the drops – and as a broad atmospheric accompaniment. Bower’s presence as a vocalist rounds out the nature of the involvement, playing up a certain gothic and sinister characteristic, yet somehow sounding more angelic in the process. Ultimately, both Lange and Bower’s musical identities work effectively in unifying the song’s presentation.
