DASH30 Makes His TSIS Debut With Compelling Electronic Smash “Try”


We’re always excited to be debuting new artists on the site, and today we have one whose catalog of songs was practically begging to be discovered. DASH30, AKA Brody Helmer, uniquely combines an array of different musical influences to consistently turn out products of luscious, electronic goodness. His newest single, “Try,” just might begin your love for this young artist.

“Try” is a funky, sample-filled bop. Beginning with an anticipatory build guided by lush pads and a filtered vocal, the producer keeps the listener on the edge of their seat, as the track catapults into a funky bass breakdown before its first glorious drop. Magical analog blips and vocal chops scatter the track, giving the song a vintage twist to balance out its modern synth leads and saturated drums. Each new sound introduced so pleasingly to the ear, “Try” is a sublime showcase of DASH30’s production mastery. We aren’t ashamed to admit we were stank-facing all the way to the last second.

Here’s what DASH30 had to say about his inspiration behind “Try”:

“Try” was actually almost entirely written in a 2 hour production challenge session held in a Discord server I own called “The Compound.” It felt like I was putting everything on the table; a “give me 2 hours and I’ll show you what I can do” kind of mindset. This mindset brought me to interpreting the sample chops as saying “Giving all you my moves to try”, so I opened the project back up, recorded those vocals and finished the song.
