black a.m.’s ‘Do You Want It’ is a compelling fusion of electric guitar, tech-house

After a triple-play of 2021 tracks that further acquainted streamers with his guitar-tinged brand of tech-house (“The Fault,” “Please Don’t Go,” and “T.S.O.F.H. (The Story of Frankie’s House)”) black a.m. is back with “Do You Want It.” His first original of the new calendar year lands on his own imprint, iamrecords, surfacing as a texture-indulgent display of his capacity to craft cuts that feel like they can not only be heard, but also—and however inexplicably—touched.

Rhythm-informed basslines lead the way on “Do You Want It”; guitar riffs, a key differentiating factor of black a.m.’s dance/electronic approach, are accents that amplify the song’s nearly tactile nature. Although the dance/electronic genre has seen the electric guitar enter an increasing number of productions in recent years, its uptake in the dance/electronic arena remains modest. As a result, black a.m.’s consistent integration of the electric guitar is a distinguishing aspect of his sound, and it’s even earned him support from Fender.

The Prodigy Artist-managed act previously previewed “Do You Want It” during his set at a sold-out installment of Insomniac’s Park ’N Rave series at the Nos Events Center in 2021. The one-off tacks onto a slew of recent successes, including signing his remix of NGHTMRE and Gunna’s “Cash Cow” to Ultra Music. As he continues to earn loyal listeners, black a.m. is also attracting support from fellow producers across genres, such as NGHTMRE, John Summit, JOYRYDE, SLANDER, and DJ Craze. He’s a worthy addition to end-of-year Artist to Watch in 2023 rosters, and his latest can be streamed below.
