DABIN & MOKITA, “Drown”
Even on paper, pop and electronic music fans seeing the names Dabin and Mokita in the same song know that something good has been in the works. “Drown” is a definite winner, and happily, not a cover of the recent Martin Garrix song of the same name. This one is an original sweeping electronic anthem about being there for your significant other no matter what. Dabin’s ongoing association with Illenium and his core team has undoubtedly helped give him much deeper roots as a producer. He knows how to bring the mood down to touch those raw emotional nerves, and then before it gets too deep, he brings you out of it with a magnificent build up. “Drown” also contains one of Mokita’s best vocals to date, with his voice soaring like on no other song that I’ve heard by him. “Drown” should become a staple at EDM festivals once they are back in swing.
