A word commonly tied to electronic dance music is “euphoria’, defined as “a feeling or state of intense excitement and happiness” – a powerful concept for a producer to have in their hands.
They say that two heads are better than one, so how about two producers? Its east coast meets west coast on this colourful collaboration from New York’s Squired and Los Angeles’ Slowpalace, aptly titled Distance via Elysian Records. A somber ‘out-of-the-box’ intro performs like an overture for the incoming, high-velocity anthemia that explodes like future bass flavoured fireworks; euphoria achieved.
Shedding light on the release, Slowpalace shares “Distance is a straightforward, high energy track that draws a lot of inspiration from legendary artists such as Rustie and Hudson Mohawke. When first creating Distance, my goal was to make something that sounded nostalgic but very raw and in your face. Sean (Squired) killed it on this track. We shared the same vision for this song so collaborating with him was very natural.”
