Premiere: Needs No Sleep – Don’t Trip (feat. Bigredcap) [Original Mix]
With G-House the most prominent and intriguing movement in contemporary house music, it was only a matter of time for the genre to go international from its de facto homeland in France — courtesy of productions from the likes of the mysterious Malaa. Australian up-and-comer Needs No Sleep teams with Bigredcap for a rumbling take on the style with “Don’t Trip.”
Wasting little time, Bigredcap quickly makes his presence known with a verse that is at once delivered with a languid flow but pointed energy. Needs No Sleep builds an intriguing production around the vocals — repurposing them for judicious samples during the drop — with a rumbling, sliding bass providing the production with a palpable energy that is undeniable. The ominous feel and subtle, intriguing variations throughout makes “Don’t Trip” a likely contender for afterparty sets as festival season comes to a close.
