Good Times Ahead submit soulful new single, ‘Let Go’
While Good Times Ahead have discarded the acronym that they were once known by, their music has remained unpredictable in the wake of this shift. The production pair have steadily alternated between festival trap, big room house, and Latin-infused moombahton on their past releases, and can now be seen foraying into soulful electro on their latest single, “Let Go.”
Making their Monstercat debut with “Let Go,” Good Times Ahead channel a refined and mature sound with the one-off, which begins with a lofty piano line, and dulcet vocals that enter quickly, as if to prepare the listener for a cut and dried piano house tune. However, as the keys and voice further coalesce, tinges of robotic harmonies make a quick and unexpected appearance before taking over the break. A tightly-wound electronic arpeggio swirls across the beat, burnishing Good Times Ahead’s talent for sound design.

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:
