Volume 1 of the new Future Stars series on Korsakov Music has been teased for a while now and it’s finally releasing Friday, July 31. Some of the names fans will have heard before, like Dropset, Inaudible and PRFCT Mandem, but the 17-track compilation has some major surprises for even the most in-the-know heads so it’s time to buckle up for massive new blood dancefloor vibes.
So how did Your EDM end up being able to premiere two tracks from this massive playlist? Quite simply, neither we nor the label could decide between these two stellar tracks, so since we’re in the final hours before the LP drops, we thought why not preview both? It’s quite likely a YEDM D&B first, but if anyone deserves it, it’s these two soon to be legendary tracks.
Both of these premieres are a bit off the beaten path from many of the other picks on Future Stars volume 1. Elusive London-based artist 3Föur already has a few inspired releases up on Beatport from his own label/collective called Umbrela, but he’s definitely gone all out for this LP. Hi Track “Forgotten Souls” feat. Nysza is jazzy and fluid, almost liquid in the intro but as the track moves into its main section, a rumble of deep, dark synth emerges and takes the track to the next level. It’s composed with a D&B structure but to accomodate Nysza’s extraordinary vocals, it also leaves room for a more pop verse-chorus-verse structure so both track and vocal can work together. It’s a tricky thing to do composition-wise, but 3Föur manages it seamlessly, creating a smooth, effortless vibe that will work for the dancefloor or radio play.
