Sometimes it takes a while for art to reveal itself and 9 times out of 10, it’s usually for the better. That’s exactly how Partywave’s remix of CLAMR’s “Clout” sounds.” Even though the original song came out almost a year ago, it was well worth the wait to hear Partywave’s take on the track.
The California native, hailing from San Diego, is still up-and-coming in the Bass and Trap scene but has already sharpened his teeth in the last year. Representing West Coast Bass, he has already shared the national circuit stages with acts such as Mr. Carmack, Great Dane and G Jones, the last who you can see in Feb 2017 at the Santa Cruz Music Festival.
“Clout” feat. Sophia Cruz contains all the unique elements of the original track while supplying the listener with a fresh set of goods. Cruz’s spell-binding voice flows throughout the track with Partywave utilizing her most hypnotic parts for an experience that walks the line between drunken euphoria and mind-boggling ecstasy. The golden chimes and calming sounds of water flowing throughout the song only add to the religious experience.
Check out the track on Spotify, iTunes or AppleMusic and keep checking back on this prolific artist. Something tells us he will be making A LOT more waves in the next year.
The Booms And Claps mix series is the brainchild of BoomsAndClaps.com, self-described “bass nerds” who realized they wanted to show listeners a new world of bass, trap and electronic music. So far they’ve featured artists such as Aztek, Shiny Things and Tiger Fresh and the websites features interviews with Euphoric favorites like Lafa Taylor and G Jones.
Mix Series 19 features another two of our personal favorites: The Pirate and Smasheltooth. For years this DJ couple has dropped beats throughout the Bay Area along with festivals like Northern Nights and the Santa Cruz Music Fest. While they don’t always perform together, the rare times I have seen them co-DJ at Motiv in Santa Cruz, it’s a musical treat to be heard. Lucky for you, this is just what they did for the latest Booms And Claps installment.
First and foremost, the mix kicks-off with an adorable intro by their neighbor’s child that can make even the coldest of hearts giggle with innocence. Smasheltooth starts first with the two switching between 15 minute sets, gracefully transitioning into each other’s music.
“Smash mixed in a lot of well curated club bangers including trap and Southern hip hop” Pirate says. “So I came in with the booms and claps of the Northwest Bass Scene.”
But don’t expect this to be your run-of-the-mill bass set because these two always have something new up their sleeve.
“The last track is BSN Posse out of Milagro, Spain,” Pirate explains. “It has this beauty to it and sounds like what you’d expect to be playing on European beaches.”
