Otto Knows – Parachute [Coming Soon – Refune Records]
It feels like the name Refune Records has not made a splash in a while now. Its true: they have not released a song since Deniz Koyu released his OLT ID track “Rage” back in March 2013. Now, the label has exited from its dormancy, and has announced its first release of 2014. Refune is welcoming back the man behind one of the biggest songs of 2013, “Million Voices”. Yes, Otto Knows is heading back to the label where it all began for the young Swedish star in February 2012. His new single “Parachute” just received its official debut through BBC Radio 1‘s Danny Howard on his Dance Anthems show. The dance music world is firing on all cylinders now that Refune is back up and running, and the official release date for “Parachute” will be revealed soon.
The first drop starts just about immediately, and under Danny Howard‘s voice, the buildup is a simple and clean sound. The drop is something thats a bit harder than what we’re used to from Otto Knows, however his fresh sound is still on the cutting edge. The lead sounds like a souped up electric guitar, and easily has plenty of firepower for the dancefloor. But “Parachute” isn’t limited to just the drop. There are vocals just about everywhere on this track (from an uncredited male vocalist), and that definitely brings “Parachute” to life. The breaks are filled with that same electric guitar sound, and the energy that’s on this track is absolutely unparalleled. Otto Knows even found a way to work in his traditional epic chord sequence, before doing it all again with another banging drop.
Refune Records is back in style, thanks to Otto Knows. Be sure to grab “Parachute” when it drops on soon. Enjoy!
