Zaid spins us back to the good vibes on ‘Party Time’ (ft. Notbad)

Zaid turns the tables up on 2020 with a new release that helps us feel the ‘Party Time‘ of 2021 (ft. Notbad).

After growing up as a Canadian kid in Abu Dhabi, he knew rather quickly what he wanted to do with his life. Be behind the decks and entertaining crowds of party-goers has seeped into his soul and he feels so alive when he is pumping the audience up. This is what he does and lives for.

The rising atmospheric soundscape sets the mood for what is next. The building block that goes higher and high in your mind and then drops hard, the party starts and the bass lifts the doom and gloom. With an electronic boost and sensual vocals that makes you close your eyes and imagine those sweaty nights in the club, dancing with your friends and meeting new lovers for the night, this is exactly the tonic that we need to make us believe in life again.

Party Time‘ (ft. Notbad) from the Canadian DJ Zaid turns back the hands of time to a better place. When there were packed crowds, smiling faces and happy bodies, sliding all over the dance floor or splashing in the sun-soaked swimming pool like there was no tomorrow.

When the world is back to almost-normal, this is the exactly the type of music that needs to be played for hours and hours while we get our dancing mode back, to forget what happened in the past and look towards the future.

Get the party started on Spotify.

Cyrus has unleashed an entrancing attack on Drops of Jupiter by Train

With their latest track, up and coming producer Cyrus has entrancingly attacked the iconic hit “Drops of Jupiter by Train.

Drops of Jupiter is one of those perfectly nostalgic hits which may not commonly appear on Playlists, but when the track catches us by chance, it hits us with waves euphoria inspired by the melodic momentum in the all-consuming Indie Rock track. With Cyrus’ remix, there’s even more high-vibe energy to soak up and the track has become even more trancey, inventively glitchy and high-octane than ever.

The New Jersey-based artist and producer well and truly made the track their own and amassed plenty of hype by doing so with their mould-breaking approach to production. He’s definitely one for the radar if you’re in the habit of keeping track of the freshest producers around in 2020.

Manic sends through an original galaxy-exploring gem ‘Program 1202’

Manic send through galaxy-exploring gem called ‘Program 1202‘.

Manic is an electronic dance music producer and DJ from Southern California in the USA. He used to concentrate on remixes but after a new friend made a suggestion, everything has changed and the light went on. Focus on your own music they said. This has given this fantastic producer a whole new lease on the game and this is a quality effort.

I love the start of the track. We hear communications from space to mission control and this gets you in the mood to hear more. The electric beat then transports you into a different mood, you feel free and start thinking about what is actually up there. Looking up and not down is the message here. The world has so many possibilities and we get stuck on what is on the tube, instead of looking up, seeing what else is up there.

Program 1202 from Californian producer and DJ Manic is a thrusting song, full of possibilities and I like how he is making his own music now, with mixes of course in his music locker. For a debut track, this is a marvelous effort and full of promise.
