Budapest-based producer and DJ, Kovary, already has a couple of tracks currently charting on Beatport. But with the help of Kansas City’s own internationally recognized dance music stalwarts at Think 2Wice, Kovary might just be looking at a couple more points to add to his resume/bio with a brand new EP called “Here We Go” out on Think 2Wice September 11th. The two tracks we like the best are not for the easily-impressed “bass heads” lacking taste who are running around clubs all over the US right now. But it’s not like this EP is for the EDM “elite” either. For instance, my two favorite jams on this nu-disco/tropical-infused release are the disco-dipped groove offered up by Kingman Fire’s “Fuck The Slow Shit” remix and DJ Archi and B-Stee’s collaborative recreation of Kovary’s title track original “Here We Go”. The hyper trap exhibitions on the latter have potential to really catch fire with the nu-trap wave all but blowing dubstep clear out of the short attention spans that many EDM revelers have battled with over recent years.
With Archi turning out a really sick club remix of Khaled/Chris Brown’s “Take It To The Head” just a couple of weeks go, and with his partner in grind, B-Stee, growing up on the Jersey/B-More club scene while living on the East Coast, these two cousins might be able to really crush the trap music game, specifically. Why? The club music that they’re accustomed to
making releasing, while enjoyable and danceable, can fall into the bin of “easy to make” club/dance styles. Trap music is one of those styles. But both of their musical backgrounds and history point to interesting similarities between Jersey Club music and trap. While the two of them seem to be constantly building their producer resume, let’s not knock these dudes off for participating in some good, old fashioned, fun remixes. Because after all, “it’s not how well you paint, it’s what you choose to paint”, in most cases at least.
