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:
