IZII & Christian French – Drifter


Life as a successful music producer doesn’t come about without hours of hard work and dedication in order to create those tracks required to take you to the top, and thats exactly whats happening to IZII. Following previous collaborations with Breathe Carolina back in 2016 – releasing ‘Echo (Let Go)‘ on Spinnin’ – and Lush & Simon almost a year ago with ‘Somebody‘ via Ultra Music, the future bass producer is taking the world by storm with his huge releases. With a recent release on Tiesto’s Musical Freedom, and his first solo track ‘Birds‘ just last year, IZII is back with his next track. Alongside vocalist Christian French, ‘Drifter‘ is the next step up in IZII’s constantly evolving career.

The new release comes in the form of a true summer anthem, with its relaxing vibes and heartfelt vocals in the break and build up. Led with piano chords and an amalgamation of sounds that are woven together to provide atmosphere and depth to the track. The introduction of a beat carries the track towards the initially peaceful build up, where the lyrics become more prominent. With the laid-back style taken with this track, the use of the word ‘drop’ may appear with the wrong message, as although the track progresses to its peak, the summertime vibes continue. An excellent combination of vocal chops, soft plucked sounds and a number of percussive elements provide the pinnacle in spectacular fashion, and rounds off an incredible track from IZII.

Releasing ‘Drifter‘ via New York based label Lowly Palace, IZII’s new track represents the summer vibes on which lifelong memories are made. A staple quality amongst his tracks, the blend of powerful vocals and future bass instrumentals provide a consistently positive end product, and ‘Drifter‘ follows suit exceptionally. With an alternative approach from his recent release ‘Drama‘ on Musical Freedom, the summer-sounding tranquility that comes with this track is magnificent, and proves why the name IZII is making waves in the music scene.
