Brand new imprint Happy Camper Records (founded by Britta Arnold, unders and Noraj Cue) drops new single “Time To Waste” (pre-order here) courtesy of Bar25 legend, KaterBlau resident and Berlin mainstay Jake The Rapper. The American-born singer/dj/producer has been in Germany long enough now to understand the art of making an “Ohrwurm” (=earworm) – “Time To Waste” is one of those tunes that keeps resonating inside your head long after you’ve heard it. With its thumping beat, catchy vocals and roaring synthline, it’s bound to set any dancefloor ablaze.
Although many believe “Time To Waste” is a love song, Jake actually wrote it for his friends:
“I was at Kater one morning, getting tired of the cyclicality of raving, thinking I really ought to go home and kiss my wife, take care of my kids, get some sleep, get my life together and get some music done. Some friends wanted me to stay and keep dancing. I was like: ‘If I had any time to waste, I’d waste it with you. But I don’t soâ€¦ Bye!'”
As is the custom in the Happy Camper family, a string of befriended producers have provided their own interpretations to the original track.
The stunning remix from acclaimed French outfit dOP that we here at Discobelle can exclusively premiere settles for no less than a mesmerizing synth combined with acid bleeps and an absolutely relentless and stomping bassline.
