ReauBeau makes his triumphant return to CULTR alongside Australian brother duo, Ekko & Sidetrack, via Circus Records. The two artists pair their audacious talents to create a stunning, amalgamation of adrenaline-laced bass and crisp synth progressions on new debutant, “Higher”. The record defies genre conforms and breathes a breath of tingling coolness into listeners’ ears.
At the core of “Higher” is a Drum ‘N’ Bass styling that is unabashedly fun and dares listeners not to embrace the rhythmic tugging of the kick. This DnB spirit is encompassed by gritty distortion. While this distortion is typically felt in bass and trap soundscapes, it adds a layer of energy that is infectious and uplifting, perfect for awakening the senses to start the work week. An additional pizzazz is brought forth by the delectable vocals that sit perfectly within the sound design and are hyper-catchy. You will definitely have the chorus stuck in your head.
ReauBeau is no stranger to the dance airwaves. The Dutchmen has oozed bold sound design highlighting why he’s garnering the attention of Annie Nightingale and BBC Radio 1, among many others. On the flipside, brothers, Ekko & Sidetrack, have made seismic rumblings in the bass scene with their distinct talent. It is clear why Reaubeau and Ekko & Sidetrack constructed such a wonderful, uplifting track.
Be sure to listen to the Premiere of “Higher” and you’ll be floating on Cloud 9.
