There's a ton of great music being released right now. The latest from Dirty South's Phazing Records is a special one from coming from two extremely talented on-the-rise producers who are just in 19 years old and 21 years old, respectively, and from different sides of the pond, in Michael Brun and Special Features. "Synergy" is a high-energy, gorgeous progressive track with stunning arpeggios and nice tempo that is already stuck in our head. Reminiscent of something that would be released on Axtone, "Synergy" has a big-room feel to it that is not over-exhausting mixing the two producers styles to create an emotional build and hard-hitting drop with a smooth progressive feel with hints of electro, or complextro in the Wolfgang Gartner sense per se. It's crafty.
I love the emotional breakdown and it all builds up to a heavy drop that I think will make it a great festival song. Im really pumped to see what people think of it.- Michael Brun
Haitian producer Michael Brun pumps out tracks out of his dorm room at North Carolina's Davidson College that have found themselves atop the Beatport Progressive charts and played out by the biggest names in EDM including Tiësto, Kaskade,Hardwell and Afrojack, not to mention playing alongside DJs like Avicii. If you haven't heard "Rise" (Phazing Records), it is recommend listening.
Special Features hails from London, you might remember his name from our feature on Electronic Spotlight teasing their new episode with him that has yet to air. "Synergy" marks his first official release, but he's got a pretty good track record—with international attention from numerous blogs and publications with unofficial remixes of Deadmau5 "Strobe" and Calvin Harris "Feel So Close" that found their way to the #1 spot on Hype Machine's popular chart.
"Synergy" was a fitting name for their track, drawing off both of their complex, unique sounds that combines the best aspects of each, Michael Brun says. "I love the emotional breakdown and it all builds up to a heavy drop that I think will make it a great festival song.
