Saint and UNIIQU3 might have a fair bit of geographical distance between them, but the two musicians are good buddies, having worked together in the past already. They came together to drop this smasher 2 days ago on Main Course, and here’s what the had to say:
“I was headed to LA for a show so I hit Saint up wanting to get in the studio together to work on some music,” UNIIQU3 says of the track’s genesis over email, “We made this song in one sitting. We came up with the vocals because it reflects the lifestyle. Being lit at a function. It’s a fun track. It’s every party go-er’s anthem. Parties should be judge free zones. You can get so lit to the point where nobody can’t tell you shit, and if they did who gives a fuck?”
“We really wanted to create something that paid homage to old school club music and our influences, as well as add our own little modern tinge to it,” Saint adds, “It came together very naturally, and it def shows in the track’s fun and carefree party nature.”

CONTROL Fridays @ The Avalon. Whether you like it or not, you’ve got a crazy story to tell from a night spent there. We think about what music we may be into right now or not anymore, but you better believe if you live in Los Angeles or have been here for a weekend, chances are you have had a wild one at one of the longest standing electronic music weekly events across the globe. After the “blog-house” scene spilled DJs into clubs and venues nationwide, Los Angeles was a beacon for this growing underground buzz. It wasn’t without difficulty for a young Ryan Jaso and Chris White to prove to the already storied venue, Avalon Hollywood, that their new weekly event CONTROL would gain any traction and or keep the crowds coming. “The red-headed step child” as the owners and managers of the club first called it, CONTROL had to live in the shadow of Avalon’s bigger nights showcasing heavyweights such as Paul Oakenfold, Tiesto, and a still thriving live music calendar. But none of that could stand in the way of what was going to happen with a growing music scene. For 5 years now, the “little weekly party that could” has turned into the taste-making, career-launching, riot-starting, life-changing movement that has kept LA one of the premiere places to discover new talent and see the best of the best at the same damn time.
