With the 2016 festival season nearly in full swing, releasing the right track is all a producer needs to capitalize on the fervor of electronic music fans. Quintino received some major support for his R3HAB collaboration in March, and he’s followed it up by joining forces with L.A. trio Cheat Codes on the main stage-ready “Can’t Fight It.”
A top line by an as-yet unidentified vocalist is underscored by pillowy synths in the first several measures of the arrangement. The percussive elements then build up to melodic drop whose Don Diablo-esque synth lead shies away from the larger-than-life grandeur that came to define EDM in recent years.
As a whole, the production offers little to differentiate it from similar tracks on the market. However, the vocals are memorable enough that “Can’t Fight It” might gain traction for their merit alone.
Quintino and Cheat Codes’ “Can’t Fight It” comes out through Spinnin’ Records on June 17th – which also happens to be the first day of Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas. If they’ve played their cards right, the track might just find its way into countless DJ sets over the course of the weekend.
