Madonna may have used this track as an excuse for her verbal mishaps at this years UMF, but utilising the free publicity with a hasty release, Cedric Gervais returns to Spinnin Records with the controversially named ‘Molly’. While the drug references may fail to be totally subliminal within Gervais’ latest single, what the track lacks in subtle messaging it makes up for in consistent force and indisputable energy. Donning an acid backdrop to its somewhat tedious vocal line, the scattered melodic charges and building rhythmic slurs make for a very different musical canvas to Gervais’ usual studio output. But given a successful test run during his set at UMF and already boasting a raunchy music video, it seems fair to say that the Miami based floor filler has made good stead out of the industry’s favourite narcotics cliché.
