SAYMYNAME unleashes versatile two-track ‘ELEVATED’ EP
SAYMYNAME has unleashed his EP, ELEVATED, a two-track project via Ultra Records, that showcases the producer’s versatility within the trap genre. The project boasts his signature hard-trap sound alongside a more melodic feature piece with Yung Pinch. “Alright” featuring the Huntington Beach vocalist offers a sultry R&B cadence alongside SAYMYNAME’s percussion, laying the track’s backbone over on a lush bed of melodic synthscapes. The hook utilizes distorted harmonic vocal chops dancing with hefty brass and sparkling ad libs for an emotive trap feeler.
“Spitfire” falls on the heavy bass side of things with an ominous buildup that leads to a stupid, silly drop of thrashing synths and filtered growls bolstered by a rumbling sub. ELEVATED closely follows the hard-trap don’s Awakening EP, as the bass slayer is looking to release six EPs in 2020.

Make no mistake—dance music is born from black culture. Without black creators, innovators, selectors, and communities, the electronic dance music we hold so dear would simply not exist. In short, dance music is deeply indebted to the global black community and we need to be doing more. Black artists and artists of color have played a profound role in shaping the sound and culture of dance music and now more than ever, it is necessary for everyone in the music community to stand up for the people that have given us so much. Dancing Astronaut pledges to make every effort to be a better ally, a stronger resource, and a more accountable member of the global dance music community. Black Lives Matter—get involved here:
