Lighting up the week Habstrakt is back on Monstercat with another high-energy, genre-blending club track, “The One” which arrives along with his first-ever music video.
Staying true to the French talents unique dark electro-tinged house sound; ‘The One’ delivers a slowly burning bassline amid distorted feminine vocals and kick-drum driven toplines that build momentum for its heavy drop.
“I’ve been holding onto this one for a while, worked and reworked it a thousand times, and I’m so excited to finally release it. The moment I heard these vocals from Pauline Herr, I knew something huge was going to happen!” – Habstrakt
Inspired by The One’s surreal, slightly ominous feeling, the video draws viewers into a split reality between three people preparing for critical moments in their lives and the pressure that lurks both inside their psyche and in the outside world.
Accompanying the release is a remix from new starters Unlovable which takes a deeper more melodic and breakbeat-infused take on the track, giving listeners a version to press play on no matter the situation. “The One” follows Habstrakt’s recent single “Lasagne,” also released on Monstercat, “De la Street” on NGHTMRE & SLANDER’s Gud Vibrations label and ‘All Night’ on Tiesto‘s imprint Musical Freedom.
