Premiere: Pep & Rash – Echo Ft. Polina
Pep & Rash are now a reputed name on the Spinnin’ Records roster. The young Dutch duo have put their hand to a number of tracks now, including the renowned anthem “Rumours” back in 2014.
Unbounded to sub-genres through their unique studio production processes, their portfolio is amply able to feature on the radio as it does on the stages of Tomorrowland. Locals to the province of Zeeland, their humble upbringing has helped ground them during their life-long friendship and elevating careers in dance music.
Coming off the back of an impressive week at this years ADE, their performances at the AMF Afterparty and Sander Van Doorn’s party were notable to say the least. Also destined this month to travel to China and play at the likes of Electric Jungle Festival and Future House Music, Pep & Rash have certainly proved their worth.
Having received millions of plays this year, following up the respected singles of “Enigma” and “Love The One You’re With” was never an easy task. Collaborating with the soft vocals of Polina, their latest offering is another scintillating offering of their sound. Infusing classic dance vibes with acoustic instrumental elements, the lyrical layers adds an evocative aspect to the atmosphere. Melancholy in nature, the percussive elements bind with the groovy dynamics to create a richness and depth to the production.
Having met by coincidence, Polina shares a bit of background of this collaboration:
“The guys (Pep & Rash) and I happened to be working in the same studio when I came to Amsterdam during the promo tour for my single ‘Little Babylon’. I was aware of their music and really liked their vibe upon meeting them. So we got in a room together a few hours before I had to leave for the airport to catch a flight home to LA. Echo was written, recorded in a matter of hours and the version you hear today is pretty much what we walked of out the studio with that day. I love when magic and instant chemistry happens like that and I think we managed to capture it in a song.”
Premiering today, Pep & Rash’s crafted offering is available today.
