waitwhat is a DJ/Producer duo from the Bay Area, consisting of Troy Skinner and Damon Dokhani. Initially meeting at UC Berkeley, the pair inevitably joined forces in June of 2017. The amalgamation of Troy’s production skills with Damon’s solo experience under NomaD, created a unique style that combines elements of ìHip-Hop, Alt Pop, Trap and Bass Musicî. One of the most successful tracks from the duo to date was ‘Alive (feat. Rielle)’ which achieved over three-hundred and ten thousand streams on Spotify.
‘Somebody (feat. Kristen Scheltens)’ sits at a smooth 92bpm and commences with a clean vocal coupled with some light percussionand spacious instrumentation. Kristen Scheltens’ vocal colour is relaxed yet also emotive. A partial delay on various lines throughout the track create a depth and creative flare that suits the mood the track perfectly.
Strongly panned elements of instrumentation create a body of sound that is a pleasure to listen to. The production of this single allows for each sound to pierce through the mix seamlessly without detracting from the prominent vocal line. The rhythmic synth sounds that systematically spread out throughout this single are a real stand out feature.
Fans of Dance and EDM will love this track. Make sure you follow Samsonite and waitwhat on Spotify to keep up to date with their upcoming releases!
