Consistently receiving support from the biggest names in the industry such as Adam Beyer, Amelie Lens, and Enrico Sangiuliano, upcoming DJ/producer Shay De Castro is back and just released her new track, “Intricacies & Realities” as part of Spektre’s compilation, Respekt Recordings Vol. 2.
Opening with a punishing kick, the track begins with oscillating synths accompanied by risers and fluttering percussive elements. Marching onward to the first build-up, panned melodies collide, creating a delectable atmosphere that ultimately erupts in a cavernous drop dominated by an outrageously gritty lead synth. Serving as a brief respite, the second half of “Intricacies & Realities” taps into De Castro’s trance sensibilities, placing melody front and center. An extended build is met with an echoing climax, one designed for warehouses and sweaty dance floors. Collapsing the synth, bass, and percussion into one, the track closes with an eerie ringing reminiscent of those first steps outside the club, pierced by both an absence of sound and utter euphoria.
Enjoy it below and follow Shay De Castro.
