The French-born, LA-based powerhouse makes his highly anticipated Insomniac Records label debut with a boundary-breaking beast of a bass house single.
Insomniac Records is turning its sights over to on-point bass house producer Habstrakt, who is sliding into the frame with his first appearance on the imprint, “Show Me.”
Over the years, the French-born, L.A.-based artist has become synonymous with heavy low-end loaded grooves that consistently push the envelope. He stays completely in step with this bar-raising rep on his label debut. On his latest single he channels a fresh influence from across the pond, which stemmed from an idea that sparked while he was on a short break in his native country.
“I went and messed around with a UK bassline on this one, something I can’t really say I’ve ever done before,” says Habstrakt. “Wrote this one in southern France during my holidays in November last year, and it’s been destroying dancefloors all over the world ever since. This record is about breaking boundaries, about me showing all the faces of my house.”
The end result goes hard with that tried-and-true Habstrakt drive, while still hitting different with some imported inspo. “Show Me,” which puts his trademark style on display via larger-than-life synth riffs, shuffling drums, arresting vocal samples, proper laser fills, a murky breakdown, and enough adrenaline to bring those peak-time festival vibes straight to your living room.
While this may count as his first official release on Insomniac, by no means is he considered a stranger to the Insomniac Music Group family. The rightfully hyped Los Angeles-based artist has been making waves on NGHTMRE and SLANDER’s Gud Vibrations, with two insanely energetic cuts on their label: “De La Street” and the more recent “Free.” He’s quickly become one of the most sought-after names in dance music, with previous appearances on Mad Decent, Monstercat, Confession, and more.
