Dubstep powerhouse Crankdat and multifaceted producer Ace Aura have teamed up for their first collaborative single, “The Feeling” out now on Monstercat.
The track has all the makings of a summer set favourite with its gritty basses, upbeat synth stabs, and powerful chord stacks drawing listeners into the high-intensity drop.
Perfectly fusing both of their sonic complexities with its infectious lyrics and subtle melodic elements, “The Feeling” is a testament to the musical prowess and range of the versatile producers.
Crankdat shares, “Very excited to finally drop this tune! I wrote this song about me and my girlfriend’s cat – momo – who really hates kisses. This inspired the hook “you don’t have to love me.” Don’t tell him the song is about him, his ego is already too big. Working with Eric (Ace Aura) was really cool. We talked about collaborating and I sent him a demo that I was stuck on and had shelved. He took the track and gave it everything that it needed and added some really cool sounds! He is a super talented producer and an exceptional sound designer – I’m glad to have made such an awesome record with him!”
Crankdat has performed all over the world, at EDC Las Vegas, Wobbleland, Sunset Music Festival, and more recently, on live streams for Dreamworld and Global Dance Digital Festival. His remixes and originals have seen widespread support from major artists like Marshmello, DJ Snake, The Chainsmokers, and more.
Known for his heavy, chord-driven take on dubstep, melodic riddim producer Ace Aura has carved a unique niche for himself in the bass space, earning fans in heavyweights like Zomboy, NGHTMRE, Zeds Dead, Subtronics, 12th Planet, and many more.
