Russian’s Max Olsen heads back into the game with an easy-going and passionate house thumper, just in time for pool weather to hit Stateside. A laidback beat drives down a shuffled, catchy rhythm, setting a fairly high bar right out of the gate. Hypnotic synth stabs and a deep, grooving bassline coalesce to lay the groundwork for a chilled-out yet fiery tune.
However, the key element that raises these pop sensibilities to the next level is the heartfelt vocal from the equally talented SevenEver. Putting his catchy lines and hooks to good use, Olsen knows when to pump the energy up and when to fall back. This is what happens when songwriting and house meet in the right places. It’s the perfect tune to drop on a summer party; people will be singing “I Don’t Give It Up” in their heads over and over again well after the fact.
