Whenever EGZOD and Leo The Kind hop on a track together, it’s guaranteed work of musical art. With massive success on their last hit Paper Crowns, sitting at almost 500k on Spotify and 700k on SoundCloud respectively, it’s no surprise that they teamed back together to create this invigorating track. It’s the kind of track that feels like you’re fighting against the current that is life, pushing towards an adventure with an equally turbulent lover but realizing the exciting uncertainty is what makes the journey worthwhile.
Leo The Kind flexed his lyrical muscles hard on this track for sure. Lines like “Rotate, vision clearer now I see why // I’m stuck in the water, with my mouth dry” and “Catch me being buried by my own bride // Tarantino when we lock eyes” coupled with his floating, strong voice leaves a unique rhythmic impression. Leo The Kind proves again and again that the right voice on a track can bring it to new heights and create emotional depth at the same time.
EGZOD has not only navigated through the uncharted waters that is future bass, but has developed his own style and sound, World Bass, within it that is on the forefront of new electronic production experimentation. The robust percussion, vocalizations and epic buildups and drops makes this one of his most well rounded releases to date and makes us excited to see if he continues in this harder, freer direction. It’s beautifully balanced and a must-add to your dance music rotation, especially if you’re looking for something with a little more thought put into it.

Marc Kinchen known by his stage name MK, is an American DJ, record producer and remixer. He hit number-one on the US Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in 1993 and 1994 with the songs “Always” and “Love Changes.” Lead vocals on both of those tracks were performed by Alana Simon (songs were credited to MK featuring Alana). The combo also recorded the underground house music classic anthem “Burning.” “Always” peaked at number 69 on the UK Singles Chart in February 1995.MK also hit the dance chart with “4 You,” using the pseudonym 4th Measure Men.
Raver Mag. had an opportunity to interview with MK after his MainStage set at Imagine Music Festival, this is what he shared up with us.
RM: When did you know that you wanted a career in music?
MK: My advice for the up-and-comers would be to not try to sound like someone else. It’s hard now with the young kids because they see who’s popular, they go home and try to make something like them. I think that that’s a really bad idea.
