PURARI & MAKJ, “Beast”
“Beast” definitely has a lot of firepower for the dance floor in just under two minutes. That’s because it’s a collaboration of two well-established young producers, New Jersey’s Purari and SoCal’s MAKJ, who caught Hardwell’s ear for release on his own Revealed Recordings. “Beast” is an easy progressive house festival banger to be sure but it’s also an extremely well-crafted piece of music. Lush synths go really big then quiet, and there seems to be some techno inspiration that recalls the work of past big names such as Josh Wink. Quite simply there’s a lot that happens and the powerful chorus will truly take command of the dance floor when it plays. “Beast” goes for the big bounce and leaves you wanting even more.
