Thomas Hayden & Ortal Israel release “If We Can’t”
Thomas Hayden & Ortal Israel are two of the most prominent rising stars of the future house and bounce sub-genre’s. With a combined total of over 3 million Soundcloud plays within the last year, their ever-increasing presence in the industry is starting to make serious waves. With Hayden founding EDMLead and Israel not even 18, the prospect of them working together is always going to be interesting.
With Thomas Hayden behind the likes of “PUMP!” with Koos and “Never“, two of the future house genre’s biggest tracks in the past couple of months it is no surprise the addition of Australian Ortal Israel has produced something special. With his own material dabbling in ‘Israel Bounce’ and Melbourne Bounce, along with aspects of trance, the diverse producer was always going to add some serious spice to Hayden’s established future house direction.
Titled “If We Can’t”, the pairs first collaboration being over 5 minutes of dynamic sound. With faint, soft male vocals dispersed throughout, the gradual culmination of layers brings an almost scenic mood where you sit back and wait to observe what happens. Bringing a bellowing, melodic chordal progression, the funkier sound adds a groovier side to much of the future house being released today – Refreshing to say the least. Adding more progressive layers in the back half of the track, it ever changing atmosphere from underground club to festival main stage gives the ear a real wake up call to creativity within electronic dance music today.
Fading out with more of a tropical house vibe it’s easy to understand why the futures of these young talents seem so bright. They are versatile quality, something increasingly rare in today’s saturated industry of emerging DJ’s. So here’s hoping there are more collaborations between Thomas Hayden & Ortal Israel and others in the near-future that sound as good as this does!
