Fast-rising producer and DJ prodigy Will Wallace is certainly wasting no time in showing his technical prowess. The creative flair burgeoning rapidly follows up 2022’s first accomplishment, ‘Mind Blown’, with another stellar production that is starting to nurture. This month, he introduces ‘Drown’, a fresh track that’ll no doubt be going down a treat with listeners or industry tastemakers. His production quality is clearly not collecting dust as another anthem emerges this Spring.
‘Drown’ is a hybrid underground-facing House production that bridges the gap between the darker dancefloor production style and commercially viable radio crossover work with precision by pairing buttery-smooth lead vocals with a combination of shuffled, classic hats and claps layered above punchy kicks. Will’s production swagger shines in the rhythmic department as he brilliantly shapeshifts without notice. Between more vintage 90s style throwback House drum patterns into futuristic, off-the-grid rolls, and buildups that take drum structures of House music.
As the riser crescendos into the main body of the track, we’re treated to a combination of arp leads. The bass works in unison with the brassy tones that sit an octave above the sub-bass.
The production and engineering on the vocal recording give ‘Drown’ a signature and modern mainstream crossover. Deep House flavors with an emphasis on pitch modulation, reverb-soaked ad-libs, a sonically gorgeous compression, and rich harmonic saturation color that creates that perfect ear candy that is so prominent in the best of this sub-genre. The discernable listener will have no issue in detecting that this is a Producer that places dedication to technical ethics in audio engineering and meticulous detail on a micro level evenly matched with the creativity that is proportionately potent. The Will Wallace signature sound is becoming apparent and it’s the sound of a Producer that has an ear to the ground of modern shifts in genre and the ability to ride that razor wire between over and underground with a touch of class.
With this latest release, Will Wallace continues to make his way into the Dance music world, putting his name into the list of artists not to be missed as he keeps on releasing memorable ear worms at a continual frequency. Be sure to follow him if you’re not already as this journey is just getting started.
