This week’s final installment of Launchpad is celebrates the happier, more vibrant side of dance music. Today we take listeners on a ride through warm and catchy vocals, electric synth melodies, and dance-inducing tempos.
Wolvo has worked alongside the likes of Kylie Minogue, Jason Derulo, MAGIC! and Keisza, and his latest
“Nothin Right (feat. DAYVID)” is an impressive new addition to artist’s collection. The track kicks things off with warm string melodies, the enticing vocals of 19-year-old Dayvid, then finally introduces an oscillating and playful bassline.
Spinnin’ Records have once again succeeded with their recent release, “Harder,” courtesy of Dutch-based producer Dante Klein. “Harder” is comprised of a pop-influenced vocal hook, a bouncy kick pattern, and powerful and bright synth melodies for the drops.
Chicago-based producer Mielo has given an electrifying fix to Baynk’s “What You Need (feat. NÏKA).” This remix stands tall as it perfectly balances NÏKA’s vocal hook with explosive bass growls and punctuated drum beats.
