Uplifting high pitched synths, combined with massive sub basses and a song structure which makes you groove. Matt Witzel marked the spot with his new track “RunAway.”.
If you imagine that club late at night where half of the people have left, and the DJ creates sort of a relaxed “you don’t have to go yet, do you?”-atmopshere… that’s where you’ll hear something like this song. With a not too constant or linear progression, Witzel uses several repeating snippets of the song, combining them to create a groovy dance track that isn’t too hectic or unresting, but active enough to set you into groove mode. With those reverbed high pitched synth melodies and that steady beat, this would totally work alongside a light show in a club.
After releasing the album “Phats” this year, Witzel continues his creative process without interruption, bringing out the next track in line. Although I’m not too sure about the mixing work done over the tracks he releases (maybe it’s just me, or my not-too-expensive-headphones, but the tracks sound somehow “flatter” than I am used to it), I think Witzel has all the tools needed to go big out there, with a trademark synth usage that shows melodic skills alongside the special ingredient I’d like to call “groove maximiser”. His sound is recognizable (which is a must out there in the industry, pepole got to stand out, right.), and the idea of not-too-fast and energetic yet danceable music works perfectly in my opinion. But don’t just take my word for it, listen for yourself!
