From Australia to L.A. to Moscow, Wax Motif and Phlegmatic Dogs’ latest effort is a resounding testament to the value of international collaboration. Wax Motif has been busy establishing ‘Divided Souls’—a newly-founded label with an impressive array of releases already under its belt.
‘Need You’ starts with crisp drums, lovesick vocals and swirling keys before building to a punchy climax; the main groove flits between droning, detuned lead synth work and is interjected by crunchy bass stabs throughout. At its best, the track is a lesson in brawny bass house, calling to be dropped at peak time in the slew of raves about to hit the post-Covid world.
With some of the best exports L.A and Russia have to offer represented on this collab, ‘Need You’ is a bold, at times emotional entry into the Divided Souls catalogue, and represents the product of three standout artists firing on all cylinders.
