Returning with his self-proclaimed “grungiest and dirtiest” song yet on Tchami‘s CONFESSION, Habstrakt releases “Control.” It further proves that Habstrakt knows what it takes to annihilate a dance floor. The fluttering synths, pulsing bass lines, and fearless sub bass are set to rattle any sound system.
Habstrakt establishes his control with the first bar of the track. It opens with a siren and congo drums. While this intro is subtle, don’t let it distract you from what Habstrakt has forthcoming. “Control” swiftly builds into a grungy bass house piece with sweating bass, wide synths, and a gritty percussion loop. “[This song is] inspired by the smell of burnt cars and tear gas; and by the sound of drum and bass, and UK house,” says Habstrakt. “[It’s] like a middle finger to anything predictable and repetitive.” Additionally, he states that “Control” came after a frustrating period of writer’s block.
To date, Habstrakt has had his sound permeate remixes for Skrillex, Diplo, MUST DIE!, Feed Me, and many more. His sound continues to play with a number of various genres, including house, future bass, and dubstep. The “Chicken Soup” producer’s discography continues to grow and has allowed him to perform at a few of the world’s most prolific festivals like EDC Las Vegas, Electric Zoo Festival and many more.
