You’ll need absolutely no introduction to this track if you’ve been paying attention. The second single from Tantrum Desire’s ‘Blue Moon EP’, featuring Nuklear MC lighting up the mic, has already been smashing it everywhere from the rave to Radio 1. With support from top tier deejays secured, ‘Step to the Sound’ is bound to make serious waves now it’s ready to drop.
The alarm-call that opens the track is a reflection of what’s to come. High-intensity, high-impact and heart-racing from the get go, anticipation is ramped even further when Nuklear steps up to drop some lyrical science. As the tune builds, bass and beats swelling to tsunami proportions, it’s clear Tantrum Desire’s not here to play around.
The explosive drop, delivering a relentlessly addictive bassline layered with surgically-sharp drums, demonstrates why so many elite deejays are drawing for this tune. The insistent, driving force, punctuated by dextrous flourishes of modulation makes this an unmissable rave weapon.
Tantrum Desire’s name on a release has become a quality-assurance mark all of its own. Operating across multiple styles of dancefloor-focused DnB, the levels of musicality and technical craft never falter. With ‘Step to the Sound’, he’s given us yet another bulletproof anthem to add to his already-stacked catalogue. Essential.
