It wasn’t long ago that names like Porter Robinson and Knife Party emerged on Beatport from seemingly nowhere. Some artists fade away in time, and others manage to stay in the spotlight thanks to their enduring production skills and creativity. Either way, it’s always a thrill to hear something buzzworthy from a total unknown. Lucky for electro house fans, new names seem to pop on a weekly basis these days. The Donovans have a new track that might just be the ideal breakout release for the French duo and their new label, Twin Turbo.
What Rise & Fall lacks in melody is more than adequately made up for in bass. Definitely a late-night crowd booster, the track is pure energy from start to finish. The original track is accompanied by a remix from 17-year old rising techno producer, SCNTST. His techy interpretation of Rise and Fall is more low-key and subtle, but by no means any less engaging. Recently signed to Boys Noize Records, expect to see that name pop up again in the future.
