The enticing track with its booming beat draws from a myriad of influences including garage, funk, house and pop, and the tracks feels like it’s been tailor made for club play.
“The track reminds us of a morning melancholy, like a night’s rest that sticks to the skin. In this blend of synth, guitar, beat and pop, we can find some of DFA as well as some funk and west coast influences. Our production looks to create a bridge between old school and modern sounds. We wanted to design a club-oriented track, mixing 90’s garage house synths, pop choruses, up-tempo guitars and a powerful and catchy bassline”
Hailing from Brisbane, Australia, producer Young Franco dropped some absolute fire. This latest release “About this Thing” features vocals from Scrufizzer. The track is as bouncy as anything I have ever heard. The lyricism from Scrufizzer is super unique and gives the song a real feel good vibe.
Swedish producer Name the Pet released her new album “Än” last week, the album consists of ten soulful, electronic pop songs intertwining Name the Pets smooth vocals with playful productions inspired by British dance music from the 00’s as well as the early works of Sade.
“You know when a car passes in London and you hear some really nice beat playing from the open car window, that’s the vibe I was going for with “Radion lovar regn”, says Name the Pet referring to the first song on the album.”
As a songwriter, producer and boss of her own label, Name the Pet is a part of an emerging scene of female producers in Stockholm.
Skullkid has found a way to match clear Kaytranada-esque influences with a subtle, perhaps accidental nod to the two-step swagger of UK garage. ‘Even a demon cries’ ebbs and flows seamlessly with outright charisma and class, taking steps back into deeper melodic side lanes before bursting back into his well-oiled beat work.
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”
