Are you ready for some bumpin’ bass and funky-azz House shizz that will serve as the soundtrack at your next party? Then make way for the collaborative track, “Touch Me” by Candyland and Ricci.
Neither one of these names were familiar to me before I heard this track, so a little investigation was in order. I discovered that Candyland is a male/female duo made up of Ethan and Josie, hailing from the sunny, beach town of Santa Barbara. Although their hometown is known for its luxury, Candyland never got any handouts, often sleeping in their car while making and performing music. But it seems like after over 2 years on the scene, they’re turning heads. Like Ricci.
Born in Brazil, Ricci, has already remixed or collaborated a plethora of “who’s who” in the EDM world like Vintage Culture and Daft Punk. He’s hitting the Lollapalooza Brasil fest this year, sharing the stage with artists like Metallica, G-Eazy and Borgore.
Released by Canadian EDM label, Monstercat, “Touch Me” combines the fun of House with the drops and power of Bass culture for an ass-shaking good time. The song demands an audience of sweaty bodies writing to the beat under the influence of the party or whatever substance of choice one prefers.
