Segan is a relatively new name to the drum n bass scene. Songs of his like “Champion” and “Attack Order” drop an insane amount of audio-action that you would expect from artists in the genre. However, the Los Angeles producer has dropped a new single “In Your Arms” that strays away from DnB and offers in its stead a vocally-charged, half time anthem.
“In Your Arms” kicks off with a flurry synths and singing that is reminiscent of the vocal stylings of Imogen Heap. It’s soft, breathy and enchanting. The drums pick up and as they get to the drop we are met with a slower climax than what most Segan fans would be used to. But the glimmering synths and gnarly bassline combine this euphoric energy with a hard kick-drum pattern. This gives “In Your Arms” a lot of invigorating elements that compel you to dance to its beautiful beat.
It’s an impressive sound for an artist to shift in that has been built their career around the growing American drum and bass boom. In their third year as a producer, their expanding into the dubstep/future bass sound made popular by the likes of Illenium and Seven Lions (the former of which he has remixed too). “‘In Your Arms’ is meant to scratch an itch you didn’t know was there,” said Segan. “[The song] is the embodiment of where the Segan project is headed.”
If that’s true, then we certainly can’t wait to hear more! But meanwhile, make sure to check out “In Your Arms” by Segan.
