OWSLA’s own Aryay has been on the rise for the past few years, consistently dropping stellar remixes and singles. The artist got his start as a local DJ in the vibrant Chicago scene, working under Flosstradamus as an intern while honing his style, which he refers to as “Lion Sound.” He went on to team up with Flosstradamus and LOUDPVCK to remix Raury’s “God’s Whisper” and Major Lazer’s “Be Together,” and he has produced his own unique future bass releases like “R YOU OK,” premiered on TSIS back in 2015.
Today we’re happy to be premiering Aryay’s first track of 2017, “Always Wanted You” feat. Kimbra, out now on OWSLA. The track features a feverish build that couples well with Kimbra’s sharp vocals, evolving into a powerful, slashing future bass drop that adds an uplifting aspect to the song. Aryay does an excellent job layering Kimbra’s hypnotic tone in with the production, and his signature lion’s roar at the end of each track adds a whole new spin on the idea of “Lion Sound.” Listen to the track below and enjoy!
