Progressive house trio Swanky Tunes might be demonstrating that they’re out of touch with their recent releases. After collaborating with bygone era superstars Far East Movement last month, they’ve now teamed up with fellow Russians Going Deeper on the aptly titled “Drownin’,” whose melodies might have turned more heads if they’d put it out last year.
Similar to Swanky Tunes’ previous Going Deeper collaboration, “Far From Home,” “Drownin'” exhibits the square-peg-in-a-round-hole approach in which reverberant future house bass lines are complacently thrown together with a progressive house buildup-drop scheme. What results is yet another EDM cliché that falls short of the fluid stylistic synthesis its producers attempted to achieve.
A preview of Swanky Tunes and Going Deeper’s “Drownin'” can be heard in the SoundCloud player above, and the full version is now out by way of Armada Music sub-label Showland Records. After giving it a listen, let us know what you think of the track by paying a visit to the comments section below.
