Here’s your first New Year’s Resolution: listen to more Future Rave. David Guetta & MORTEN continue their acclaimed project with their latest monster ‘Permanence’, ready to kick start your year the best way possible.
‘Permanence’ surprisingly begins in the midst of what might usually be called a breakdown. This teasing intro takes its time, giving snatches of the lead melody while building the tension effortlessly. A subtle build slams us headlong into a dizzying techno groove, with stuttering synth blasts cutting against throbbing bass and that snarling main motif. The haunting breakdown features an ethereal operatic vocal that soars skywards, leading to a moment of tense silence. Out of nowhere comes an intense buzz of synth pressure, which loops and shudders all the way to the drop. It’s a dark, heady track that’s designed to take apart big rooms and will send your mind to an altogether different place wherever you listen to it.
“People keep asking for more, so we deliver more! It’s incredible to see the impact Future Rave has on the dance music scene and I can’t wait to continue developing it this year.” says David Guetta. On ‘Permanence’, MORTEN says “David and I have both played this track in our sets and the crowd went wild every time, I’m really excited for the track to finally be out there for them to listen to wherever and whenever they want!”
Following on from the huge ‘Alive Again’ and the Future Rave remix of David Guetta & Sia’s classic ‘Titanium’ (for its 10th anniversary), ‘Permanence’ joins an incredibly impressive catalogue from these two. Expect plenty more from this unbeatable partnership across 2022.
