AM: Calvin and I met at a record shop I worked at in the early 2000s. He needed a place to live and I had a spare room, we lived and worked together and have been buddies ever since. I feature on his last two albums. I’m so proud of him.

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]

5.    What I Need (Right Here, Right Now) Feat. Justina Maria [Sauna Riot! Remix]

“Salt Ashes wants to dominate the dance floor — provided, that is, that everyone at the club is clad in black. Sure, she might be a material girl at heart (aren’t we all?) but the Brighton, England-based singer (née Veiga Sanchez) is out to provide an arty alternative to the Technicolor tunes of Madonna and her spandex-clad followers. “
