Last year, France’s Watermät broke through with his hit, “Bullit,” that was one of the biggest tracks of the summer, and now he’s back with a new collaboration with Germany’s TAI as a follow up. Each of them have their own individual sounds, but when they’re fused together, the result is this firing new tune, “Frequency.” Combining driving grooves with big-room appropriate elements, the pair seem to have created a versatile house tune that can crush a festival, just as hard as a club. Have a listen to “Frequency” here – it’ll be released next Monday, March 30th via Spinnin’ Records.
