The cool factor about Divinaion Recordings, the brand-new LA-based label began by Viper/Bassrush compilation artist Theatrix  and his spouse final month, is that they’re additionally seeking to uncover brand-new artists, each regionally and overseas. With their first launch “With Me” that includes Franny B now out worldwide, Divination has turned to its first new artist, Composure. His debut single “Listen” is out November 7 and the label has positively hit it on the pinnacle in phrases bringing ahead a shiny new expertise. Your EDM was fortunate sufficient to get the unique premiere.

With a heavy, clear bassline and a traditional snare-based drum monitor, “Listen” is already on good footing , however what makes it stunning that Composure hasn’t been found but is his experience in working with the melodic and sound design components within the monitor. The placement the vocal monitor, the melodic components and the best way he makes use of the ambient house are all fairly superior.

The vocal monitor fades in as half the opening and bridges the breaks in a very cool, old fashioned approach that makes this monitor really feel fairly ravey. The melody within the synths was finished with some kind sine wave manipulation as nicely. Rather than simply being layered on high the drums and one another, the vox and melody appear to wind round one another with their respective waves, occupying the empty house within the monitor in a approach that we don’t ten see anymore in DnB. While steppy and extremely danceable, this monitor additionally has a soothing, ambient nearly shoegazey high quality to it.

It’s clear that Composure has studied the previous masters and likewise in all probability spent lots time honing his techinque for this monitor in order that he may get a real DnB groove to “Listen” but in addition make one thing new, totally different and trendy. This artist is unquestionably one to look at in future, and if that is Divination’s first choose for brand spanking new artists on their imprint, they are going to be a couple of to look at; they’ll be one to observe.

“Listen” is out November 7 worldwide. Keep an eye fixed on and for the pre-sale hyperlinks, obtainable November 1. For extra details about Divination, take a look at our interview with Theatrix by Shane Armijo .
