Space Review: Waitwhat – “Drives Me Wild”
Welcome to Space!
Another week is almost gone (we hope you had a wonderful one), and we want to end it with some cool vibes. We’ll close this week with a fantastic Duo from the US, Bay Area, formed by Troy Skinner and Damon Dokhani, known as WAITWHAT.
Troy and Damon first met at University of California, after seeing the potential in one another Damon decided to join Tory’s solo project waitwhat in June 2017.
With a total of 1 million streams and over 12 million song views on TikTok, these guys are unstoppable and keep delivering to the public some sick tunes!
Waitwhat released a total of 11 singles and 3 remixes.
Their latest release is “Drives Me Wild”, which is a song they started producing in 2017 but were never able to finish it up, and finally released now after they found the perfect vocalist: Akacia.
Drives Me Wild is a fun song about finding someone that suddenly can change your mood, your day, and your perception of seeing things, changing from black&white to a full-color view.
It starts with some piano chords and high-pitched vocal chops that open up to the verse, with the fantastic voice of Akacia.
We can feel the rhythm with the minimal percussion sounds and the designed wobble bass pad, which intensifies with a kick drum leading to the drop.
Future bass synths are the focus of the drop, with detailed drums and vocalized lines of Akacia; the drop keeps playing once more, changing the rhythm of the synths to triplets, making everything way more interesting!
These guys got the rhythm in their blood, and we can recognize their unique sound style!
The perfect song to chill this evening, ending the week in the best way possible.
