The hustle that some producers put into their musical craft is evident by the output of tunes they release. After a very brief break between his last release on Mixmash with Bream at the end of last March, Miami’s 29 year-old DJ and producer Henrix returns with a brand new single and a free remix and all on this fine Thursday.
The new original from Pedro Henriques is known as “Acid, Rave, Sex” and almost feels more like a statement than a tune. With a robotic monologue poking at the general misconceptions and criticisms of the electronic dance music scene, Henrix’s latest creation is an grungy ode to acid house that carries its own form of a “raver’s manifesto” blended with blood-pumping builds and head-banging kicks. The song will be released via Thrive Records, which has released tunes from acclaimed electronic musicians and producers including Paul Oakenfold, A-Trak, John Digweed, Deep Dish, and more. Although we’ll have to wait until the song’s June 3rd release date, you can stream the two minute preview on YouTube from Thrive Music’s channel.
To add extra hype to this release, Henrix entices fans with a free release of his remix to the festival banger “The Hum” by Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Ummet Ozcan. Ditching the blaring horns of the original, Henrix reinvigorates this main stage titan by giving it a tribal feel with a more drum-focused nature in the drops. Aside from that, the catchy melody and the vocal “humming” remain unchanged allowing Henrix’s work to be that more surprising to fans of the original who have yet to check this remix out.
To top it all off, however, Henrix reveals a huge deal that you may want to check out. One more than lucky fan accompanied with a guest will be treated to a Las Vegas trip on June 27th with all the VIP perks at the club Daylight. Including flights, a hotel room, VIP guest listing, and partying with the man himself, Henrix has pulled out all the perks for the contest winner and their plus one. Their is still time to sign up for the contest here, but better hurry before it’s long gone after Monday, June 1st.
