• Straightforward design

• Festival techno get-up

In a never-happened scenario, two interesting EDM figures decided to team up. What came out of that association is attention-grabbing and hence this article. American creators MAKJ and Luis Torres hit the studio together for an uptempo, fun-packed techno experience “PSA.”

Although we haven’t been consistently following both of the monikers in recent times, they on the other hand haven’t slackened. MAKJ, who became well-known after his explosive electro house songs like “Party Till We Die,” has stuck to an experimental pattern lately, trying his hands on anything from percussive tech/bass house (“Burning Rave”) to future rave-like “One Night” (with Carta). Luis Torres (formerly of the renowned Dzeko & Torres duo) hasn’t stepped back on versatile projects either, free-flowing between melodic deep house such as “Wildfire” (Selected) to club-friendly tech house like “Freak Like Me.

Sure, a collaboration like this usually ends with both parties mutually accepting to do a style they excel at: In this case, we see that as tech house. But experienced and genuine producers often love to take the other route, and that’s what happened with “PSA”: the song propels with thick kick drums and a Darude “Sandstorm” resembling lead sound! It’s hard to exactly label the said riff sound to the iconic trance song, although there are similarities if listened closely. A rap vocal hypes and brings onboard excitement, and the composition adopts a fairly straightforward groove with bass ‘donks’ and techno/tech house-type groove that, in our opinion, leans towards future rave. Like usual standards, a transient breakdown comes in to escalate towards the final drop, which runs with extra additions such as hoovers and FXs to fill out the climax further.

“PSA” has a conventional festival techno-type formula, with a squeeze of eccentricity coming in the form of the sound design. An appreciably unique synergy between two well-known monikers, and they didn’t disappoint!
