French producer Habstrakt, known for his eclectic approach to bass music seems to have found his sweet spot around the house tempo as of late. In recent months we’ve seen him deliver an impressive frenzy of remixes for Kill The Noise & Feed Me’s “Far Away”, Die Antwoord’s “I Fink U Freaky”, and Skrillex X Diplo collab “Dirty Vibe”.
Now he’s teamed up with Los Angeles rising producer JVST SAY YES for an original bass house heater titled “Higher" that balances wonky bass fueled drops with bouncy deep house melodies and vocal samples for the perfect outcome. Stream the premiere and grab an exclusive free download below. Enjoy.
