Hardwell’s been teasing you with it, and now Sander Van Doorn is letting you have it. FTampa & The Fish House’s “031” has been played by EDM’s frontrunners like Hardwell (at EDC Las Vegas, Chicago’s Spring Awakening and on his “Hardwell On Air” radio show), R3hab, Martin Garrix among others. That’s a lot of ears. This release gives the sub kick fueled big-room sound a refreshing breath of the Brazilian breeze. 031’s drop sounds like an oiled up Brazilian butt where most tracks in the genre sound like they’re dropping the listener onto a concrete floor. FTampa and long time collaborator The Fish House contrast the nighttime intensity of the drop with a feeling of rushing white water during the break. These two sections work together seemlessly with the rush of the break carrying the listener into the parade of the drop.

Almost two months ago, Tomorrowland Brasil released their most recent hair-raising aftermovie. It’s no secret that EDM is booming in Brasil. FTampa is holding the country on his back as he tours the world playing clubs and festivals. With 031’s glittery break and slippery drop, FTampa, Brasil’s pride, gives us another reason to regard him as Brasil’s most prominent EDM export. It’s productions like these that have gotten him support from the industry’s biggest names like David Guetta, Hardwell and Martin Garrix as well as placed his tunes on the soundtracks of Playstation and XBox games.
