For anyone still sleeping on Chace, it’s about time to wake up. The Shanghai-based pop/dance prodigy has exploded onto the scene on Yellow Claw‘s Barong Family imprint, and really hasn’t looked back. Since his 2017 breakout, the emerging wunderkind has already landed an EP on Mad Decent, guested for a bonafide Diplo & Friends mix, and even launched his own release imprint, HOWSHOOD. If that wasn’t impressive enough, Chace also became the first ever Chinese DJ to perform at Tomorrowland. Oh yeah, and he’s done it all before his 20th birthday.

The artist’s meteoric rise continues with a binge-worthy house cut titled “Never,” arriving DJ Snake‘s own PREMIERE CLASSE label. Tight piano chords and pitchy vocal cuts are the main ingredients of a toe-tapping tour de force, with deep sub power and shuffling house percussion keeping pace. Chace does a top-notch job of letting only the most important sounds do the talking on this one, and the result on “Never” is a pop-injected house hit that sounds polished beyond the young up-and-comer’s years.
