Canblaster & Nightwave "Power Up"
- Words: Patric Fallon
Here, we have our second taste of the music conceived and born at Red Bull Music Academy 2011 in Madrid, the first of which was a '90s-inspired house cut from Ghosts on Tape, Krystal Klear, and Broken One. "Power Up" finds French tunesmith Canblaster and UK up-and-comer Nightwave working together to create some ultra-smooth grooves that wouldn't be all that out of place in a Top 40 radio rotation. (We mean that in a good way.) Look for the rest of RBMA's exclusives when the free Various Assets compilation (pictured above) is released on February 24.
