If stars had their own soundtrack, DJ TEN‘s track ‘Nightfall’ would be it. Leading with organic percussion meeting retrowave synths, the track boasts elements of R&B which quickly appear with the smooth female vocals.
Speaking of the track, DJ Ten shares, “Nightfall was inspired by many things for me. The key thing being to make a song with retrosynth inspiration, but to also give it a modern vaportrap twist and execution. I love to blend different sounds together that no one expects.”
DJ Ten – the man behind the tastemaker Youtube Channel, New Retro Wave, which has nearly one million subscribers – received over four million views across streaming platforms while a track from his ‘Retrological 2.0’ album was featured in the movie ‘The Demolisher’. DJ Ten has previously collaborated with synthwave producer, Trevor Something on two highly successful singles, ‘The Inner Voice’ and ‘Viral Lust’.
‘Nightfall’ is part of the Brooklyn-based retrowave producer’s self-produced EP ‘We Dream Aloud’ via TenStars. Check out the single below:
