Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike vs. Ummet Ozcan – The Hum [April 20 – Smash The House]
For those of us who have seen the movie The Wolf Of Wall Street, this next track will sound pretty familiar. That’s because Belgian duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike teamed up with Turkish producer/DJ Ummet Ozcan for “The Hum”. Formerly working titled as “The Wolf,” this tune samples Matthew McConaughey’s famous humming sequence. There are some obvious differences that we will get to later, but fans have been waiting around for this track since last summer when the tune was unleashed on the crowd at the mainstage of Tomorrowland. After serving as a key component in the Bringing The World The Madness World Tour, “The Hum” will drop on April 20 through Smash The House.
The foundation of the track is definitely the sample of the humming. It serves as the base for the beginning of the breakdown, and the inspiration for the chord progression that takes over as the track moves onwards. “The Hum” serves as the perfect breeding ground for both Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Ummet Ozcan alike to showcase the strength that brought them to their respective mainstream fame. Powerful synth choices and layering that have become the trademark of Ummet Ozcan highlight an energy-impact breakdown, while Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike show off a pounding bassline that has already rocked festival-sized sound systems across the globe.
“The Hum” will be out on Smash The House on April 20.
