Alvaro & Carnage – The Underground (Original Mix)
It may have been nearly a year since Carnage first played out the intro notes of the “Harry Potter ID,” but its TomorrowWorld premiere proved to be just the first of many appearances. Now making its Beatport debut, the song revealed as Alvaro collab “The Underground” is making its pre-release history look like a warmup. EDC attendees heard the movie score melody loud and clear from the circuitGROUNDS in both artists’ sets this weekend, but the real momentum of the spoken word-punctuated track comes from its made-for-festival builds. Picking up where the sliding notes leave off, the pulse-raising uptick breaks into the sort of stomp that has come to define electro house in recent history and that will keep this tune at the top of playlists for months to come.
