DASCO’s New EDM Single ‘What I Need (Right Here, Right Now)’ feat. Justina Maria Available Now

Dasco - What I Need (Right Here, Right Now)

Radikal Records is proud to announce the North American release of DASCO‘s spring break EDM anthem, ‘What I Need (Right Here Right Now)’ featuring vocals from the talented Justina Maria. The electronic music production team, previously known as Bassmonkeys, strategically slipped some promos of their new track to guest and resident DJ’s in Ibiza last summer. The North American single includes mixes from prominent remixers Rob Roar (Stella Attar), Shoko, Sauna Riot! along with an exclusive remix from Tontario (MDNGHT, Krewella).

For the last couple of years DASCO have been busy producing and mixing behind the scenes for a number of well known acts under various pseudonyms. They’ve racked up a number of National Chart topping hits from the lively “Get Busy” (Tune of the Week Kiss FM & Radio 1) to the laid back chilled vibes of “Another Valentine” and “Always Be Together” on Mark Doyle’s Fierce Angel imprint.

‘What I Need (Right Here Right Now)’ is a light and breezy piano house track with an infectious sing-a-long chorus, and the original club mix was perfect for Ibiza’s sunny island atmosphere. The remixes add a bit of variety to the original sound, making them useful for an assortment of DJ sets and styles. Rob Roar takes the original mix and ups the intensity and drama for his White Isle Radio Edit. Tontario moves the sound in a mainstream direction while adding tropical elements which make it perfect for spinning at a day party near the pool or by the beach. Shoko adds some jazzy saxophone riffs and a funky chilled out vibe, making the song perfect for an after hours DJ set while Sauna Riot! dips into dark and moody dub territory, bringing in some electro elements and dropping out the vocals.

‘What I Need (Right Here, Right Now)’ is now available for download on iTunes, Beatport, and Bandcamp. The single is also available for streaming on YouTube and Spotify.

Track listing:
1.    What I Need (Right Here, Right Now) Feat. Justina Maria [Rob Roar White Isle Radio Edit]
2.    What I Need (Right Here, Right Now) Feat. Justina Maria [Tontario Mix]
3.    What I Need (Right Here, Right Now) Feat. Justina Maria [Shoko Remix]
4.    What I Need (Right Here, Right Now) Feat. Justina Maria [Club Mix]
5.    What I Need (Right Here, Right Now) Feat. Justina Maria [Sauna Riot! Remix]

MDNGHT’s “Breeze” Reviewed by Exposed Vocals

mdnight exposed vocalsExposed Vocals wrote a up an awesome review on MDNGHT‘s hit “Breeze.” The review was written up by Linda Dawkins, who had all positive things to say about not only “Breeze” but MDNGHT as well.  “MDNGHT is an outstanding singing group that impressed me at the amount of professionalism in their performance and the amount of positive energy that I received from watching and listening to the track,” says Dawkins.

What more can you ask for in excellent entertainment! No wonder the single has hit the charts. The intro is surprisingly enough subtle and smooth, the lead vocals are performed superbly are comforting just as the lyrics suggest, as a breeze. A cool breeze. ” the thing is we don’t care, lay your heads down anywhere, as long as the weathers fair, nothing really matters, we just go where the breeze goes…’ I am especially impressed by the lead vocalist. There is a melodic tone quality that periodically reaches falsetto, a feat even I struggle to muster.

For the North American release of “Breeze” there is the “Tontario & Saxokid Remix” and a “North 2 South Remix,” which adds a little extra bonus for these North American fans. Here is what Exposed Vocals had to say about the two remixes:

The single Breeze is available on itunes and likewise, there is a B side the ‘Tontario & Saxokid remix,’ from the US based website entitled Goodmusicallday contains a wicked saxophone drop as an extra bonus. Moreover, its an impressive House ReMix . Even a North 2 South remix that is just as striking as its sisters. An exquisite vocal lead with distinctive qualities, A herculean display of two Electric guitars with outstanding back up vocals, finally an exceedingly potent display and use of an ‘Octopad Drum Machine’ equals a wondrous performance.

Overall, MDNGHT and their single Breeze have an amazing sound that is incomparable and is unique to its own brand. The song called for several playbacks as it was enjoyed very much and had an indepth meaning that could captivate  listeners immediately. I am honored to have been able to receive an opportunity to review this single. Look for more great musical performances and more great music from MDNGHT I know I will.

“Breeze” is available to purchase on iTunes. Watch the music video for “Breeze” above, or you can check out their YouTube channel.  You can listen to more from MDNGHT on SoundCloud. Make sure you stay up to date with every thing MDNGHT by following them on Twitter and on Facebook.
