I Got The Big Beat: Fragment’s “Polygonair”


Fragment’s latest, “Polygonair,” starts with just percussion. His beats hit like pistons, a few other scattered sounds (hand claps, electronics trying to suck themselves up) popping up, but the early parts of this track dominated by those big pounds. It sounds like a laptop maestro’s take on Stomp! Fragment softens the blows by sprinkling lullaby twinkles over the factory pounding, and eventually “Polygonair” turns more dramatic with the entry of strings. Yet this is a song dominated by that pounding, from minimal start to Final Fantasy-worthy finish. Watch the video above.
