MAKJ is also closing out the year with a brand-new single title ‘Promises. Featuring JYYE, this deep, groovy track finally makes its debut after two years in the making. This track is releasing on Armada Music and follows his most recent release ‘Green Light‘.
The pair does a great job of mixing the underground and commercial worlds. Dark, yet ethereal vocals stitch the song together while the arpeggio drops relieve suspense. Male vocals, when cast correctly, will add a great atmosphere to the song. It definitely happens in this one, and couples well with the deep bassline, hi-hats, and percussion shakes. We can see this song shaking things up on the intimate dance floors.
Make no mistake that this track takes the MAKJ signature sound and fuses it with JYYE’s sound. According to him, this was his favorite collaboration. The Aussie producer and Cali native have been busy making a name for themselves. Together, they become a great show duo, and perhaps we may get to see them both live on stage one day.
An aptly named title, perhaps it’s foreshadowing the new year. What promises, resolutions or goals do you have set for next year? If you need help thinking, let this song be your guide.
