Bristol duo Paragon (Tom Wheeler & Sam Shotaka) have with only four releases made their mark on the airways and in the clubs, gaining support from Spotify (Fresh Finds, New Music Friday UK), BBC Radio 1 (Toddla T), 1Xtra, Triple J (Hitlist), Kiss, Capital and many more. The duo incorporates elements of UK garage, house, drum and bass, dubstep and grime in their sound.

Now they team up with vocalist David Boomah (who is perhaps best known for his work with UK drum and bass artists such as Shy FX and Rene LaVice) for new single “Get Involved” (drops tomorrow February 15th via Paragon Sound/[PIAS]) which is a massive soul-infused bassed up house tune that has all the makings of being a serious party destroyer.

“David’s vocals just cut through anything as heavy and dark as you can make. Perfect for the style, he gets the message through and lifts it higher on each verse and chorus. Musically its about tension, release, and anticipation. You know what’s coming, enjoy the journey and then when it hits it gives you that rush and keeps you hooked for the next drop”

There’s not many people that can get away with remixing Kendrick Lamar these days. Then there’s Skrillex. Having barely caught his breath from dropping the Poo Bear accompanied ‘Would You Ever,’ his take on ‘HUMBLE’ builds into a heavystepping affair of the kind of main room wizardry we have come to expect from Sonny Moore for more than a decade. Here’s to the A-list EDM acts keeping it fun and not falling flat on the A-list remix endeavors.

Not usually a fan of songs within this genre but the sound design in this track is pretty damn impressive. Also not surprised to hear quality being pumped out by Kannibalen, one of the imprints I’ve grown to appreciate over the past year or so. This is Kai Wachi‘s “LUVSICK” – play it loud (the piano breakdown gave me goosebumps).
