Rising DJ and producer Ares Carter joins forces with well-known artist, ILoveMakonnen for their new single, “Next To Me,” on Heldeep Records.
The new release is a dark progressive house tune that is certain to hypnotize listeners with its bold bassline. Pairing ILoveMakonnen’s seductive vocals with Ares Carter’s mesmerizing sound design, the song is infectious from start to finish as it combines various pulsing synths and thick basses to provide the listener with a wonderful track to move and groove to.
Ares Carter told us that “When I first started DJing and uploading some mixes to Soundcloud for friends, Makonnen randomly reached out to me on there and told me he loved my mixes and was playing them at his parties. He was unknown at the time, but I thought he had some of the most unique music I had ever heard, so we always kept in touch. Fast forward a year or two, and “Tuesday” is now one of the biggest songs in the world. He suddenly became a superstar and had asked me to join him on tour as his official DJ. I was only 17 at the time, so I would be in high school during the week and then traveling the world with him alongside idols of mine like Skrillex, Diplo, and Kygo on the weekends. It was an experience I’ll never forget and it gave me my first start in the music industry. From there I made it my mission to hone my skills as a producer and become an artist in my own right, so I think that making this record with him was a full circle moment and a big step towards that goal.“
