Fast-rising Balcan newcomer Reblok presents his scintillating Hot Creations debut single Smile, released this October on the acclaimed label.
“With ‘Smile’ I wanted to make a crossover between a radio and dancefloor bomb. ‘Roots’ is a mirror image of my dark side which is strictly for the dancefloor. I’ve always had two sides since I started making music and this EP perfectly resembles that. The inspiration for the dark music comes from video game soundtracks and my background is from trance music that I produced ten years ago under another alias.” Reblok.
The fist-pumping groove of Smile opens the release, driving hi-hats are introduced, bounding into anthemic pop-rap vocals, alongside playful keys that add colour to ignite the dance floor. On Roots the sense of fun is continued, snare-rolls combine with mouth-watering filtered synth and springy samples, creating a heads down, hands up tool.
Release Date: 25th October 2019
