Premiere: Ramon Tapia – Thrust

Ran by prolific producer Ramon Tapia, Belgium based ‘Say What? Recordings’ was first established back in 2012. Now, half a decade on, the 5th anniversary of this label is being celebrated with a bang, in the form of the sensational “Surrender” EP, three-tracks of flawless and smoldering dance music, with a deep and tech-filled groove. 

The release, coming from Ramon Tapia himself, and Rik Watts, sees the duo cement their production techniques with one another yet again, following their first collab project earlier this year on Gem Records with their highly acclaimed ‘Snuss’ EP. 

Sandwiched between the original mix of “Surrender” and the Kikdrm remix of the same track on the EP comes ‘Thrust‘ – a clean kick and rumbling bassline, topped off with filtering synth lines throughout the track, that really showcase Tapia’s solo production skills. With a thumping strong kick and a hint of funkiness, this one looks set to go off whether day or night, and looks set to become a heavily featured track in various future sets.

We Rave You is proud to premiere the electric track ‘Thrust’ so take a listen and let us know your thoughts on this sparkling and glossy production from an artist, and label, who will be dominating the dance music scene for a long time to come!
