Revealed Recordings have long shown a knack for striking a fine balance between releasing music from the biggest artists and newcomers alike, and they once again showcase their weight as they bring two heavyweights of dance music together to release on the label, as Laidback Luke and Carta team up for the epic ‘Kong’. Laidback Luke’s latest outing came in the form of his remix of the huge ‘Sideways (feat. Valerie Broussard)’ from ILLENIUM, while Carta latest appeared with his track ‘Big Beat’ on Rave Culture. ‘Kong’ isn’t the first collaboration from the pair, and it’s abundantly clear with their latest partnership that the synergy in the studio is effortless.
War drums and roaring synth tones quickly set the chaotic atmosphere in ‘Kong’, as the track wastes no time in kicking into gear, dropping into the beat within seconds of the song beginning. An infectious lead glides above the stomping beat. The track drops down into a beautiful, warm soundscape of sustained layers of music that signal an expert knowledge of the dynamics of electronic music. This sets scene for a huge main synth to reveal itself, guaranteed to get hands in the air from the first listen.
Laidback Luke and Carta have enjoyed immensely successful careers, riding the crest of the wave and managing to stay ahead of the game for years. That sustained success has resulted in support from most of dance music’s finest tastemakers, including Hardwell, Steve Aoki, ANGEMI and David Guetta. ‘Kong’ is another addition to a huge arsenal of weapons that both artists will be waiting to unleash when they return to touring in the immediate future.
