Track of the Day: Pirupa – Activator
Happy Monday my friends! For today’s track we have the latest release from Italian powerhouse Pirupa. ‘Activator’ is the second track on his latest release ‘Solo EP’, out just last week through the boys over at Monaberry. Compared to the rest of the EP, ‘Activator’ offers a darker, more ominous tone. Pirupa utilizes ascending arpeggios and minor scales over a low, pulsating bassline to build tension in this massive melodic house composition. In the second verse he introduces a synthesizer element that continues the gradual build until everything comes together into a perfectly executed drop. ‘Activator’ promises to stoke substantial heat at nightclubs and dusty festival dance floors alike all year long. Fantastic stuff!
