Boowas & Tallesan – Banned From Server EP
‘Banned From Server’ is Boowas & Tallesan’s debut two-track EP. The versatile Norwegian duo have already enjoyed considerable success with their Trance, Melbourne Bounce, Bigroom and Electro House infused project, reaching as high as #9 on Beatport’s ‘Electro House Chart’ and picking up support from a long line of leading international spinners. Boowas & Tallesan’s unique style, consisting of various EDM genres, together with their energetic live sets, have also landed them performances with some of the biggest names in the Norwegian music scene and beyond.
‘Aurora’, offers a spectacular opener to the EP- an intense, pumping track aiming at setting a euphoric mood at both clubs and festivals around the world. Led by an infectious synth pattern on top of a punchy, deep drum groove, ‘Aurora’ has all the credentials to kick-start a main room crowd into action. Boowas & Tallesan show total control over their dynamic levels with their smart use of diverse bass textures, wisely positioned drops, and a refined melodic intellect. The production also reserves a diverse selection of electronic effects, drawn from the duo’s sound arsenal to add colour to this single. The general mix sounds colossal, making ‘Aurora’ an impactful introductory song for their memorable debut EP.
‘Drummerang’ is an Electro House effort, forming the second half of ‘Banned From Server’. Kicking off with a heavy, four to the floor kicker beat; the track quickly introduces a clean synth loop in the background that leads the way for the thumping bass line. The ascending, looped electronic effect gives way to the massive percussive drop. Driven by rhythmic synths, deep basses, and a variety of original effects – this drop heads to a drastic halt. The single then takes a radical turn, building into an epic section with a prominent, grand string melody over a blanket of subtle, distorted synth effects and crashing drum fills. The vocal underlining devised by the Tromsø based duo leads once more to the drop which slowly fades away into a stripped, higher-pitched variety – offering an expertly-crafted ending to such an intense production.
