Crankdat debuts on Armada with ‘Say It’ feat. Sara Skinner

Sara Skinner

As Crankdat is in the prime of his career, being recognized as one of the most talented youngsters in the industry, he drops one on Armada feat. Sara Skinner and it’s called ‘Say It’.

It’s a true privilege for any artist to be featuring on Armada at such a young age, as it speaks volumes of his quality.

The track is a perfect amalgamation of scintillating vocals, some fiery drum and bass, coupled with a brilliant melody. The uncanny drift in the tempo makes one want to go all out on the dance floor. Smokey vocals in the middle lead onto a spree of incredible electric guitar riffs. This one truly stands as a testament to the wide acclaim that Crankdat has received.

This is what he had to say about the track, “The production process of ‘Say It’ was absolutely seamless.  I produced the beat earlier this year with no intentions of doing anything with it — sometimes I make very different styles of music for total fun, and so was the case with this, I just did it for fun. When I sent it around to my team and a few other trusted ears, everyone really liked it, and so arose the possibility of it becoming an actual release. I sent it to this vocalist I met on the Internet a few months prior, the super-talented Sara Skinner, as we had discussed working on a song in the weeks before. We never got in the studio together, never called about it, talked about it etc. She just took it and ran. The first demo Sara sent back was absolutely GOLD.  She did her thing, and she nailed it. Afterwards, I finished processing the vocal and engineering the beat, and thus, ‘Say It’ was born!”

Sara resonated and said,”Christian (Crankdat) sent me this track late one night, and I was so stoked on the music that I immediately set up a co-writing session with Karra (who worked with me on ‘Interstellar’ and ‘Time Warp’). I write all my music for my own project, but I’m pretty new at working on electronic music, so I hit her up because I needed to make sure this one was another really great one. We ran with our usual thought process and kept a strong focus on the melody and painting mental images with the lyrics. We recorded the vocals right there and then to capture the actual energy of the song in that moment. I’ve been really excited about this one; the track alone is epic, and I’m grateful to have worked on a song with such a well-respected guy in the scene”

This has proved to be collaboration worth all the noise and the popularity that we are sure it’ll receive soon! What do you think?
