Italian up-and-comer I am Sid has teamed up with MaTTsh for some midtempo magic in the form of “Prozium.”

The sinister single opens with a daunting atmosphere and, in the blink of an eye, overtakes you with pounding drums and a glitchy drop. The score-worthy track is the auditory equivalent of having all of your emotions explode at once, which is ironic, considering the track got its name from a fictional drug that suppresses human emotion. The perfect contrast of light and dark, “Prozium” is one step ahead of the game when it comes to dance music’s current affinity for menacing midtempo.

Prozium, is it real?
