The crunching drums immediately let us know that Dangerouz lives up to his name. The kicks and snappy snares fill the ranges, giving us a top to bottom lashing of frequency content that stacks up tall on any speaker. The breaks bring in a complex and grinding bass line that’s supercharged with subtle, but effective distortion and a nasty compression that pushes the bass end straight to the front of the well-executed mix. If you were a fan of early upfront Electro House, then ‘Candyman’ will be right at home on your playlists. The side...read more
