Since 2011, Marten Hørger has been in the EDM scene for a decade now, making him a veteran by any stretch of the definition. Many artists have come on strong, only to fade away into the abyss, but not Hørger. The German producer has bounced around from label to label releasing amped-up bangers for years. Hot off of a mix for Diplo & Friends and an official remix for Apashe, Hørger continues his momentum with a powerful return to Tchami’s Confession Label today with a two-track EP guaranteed to fit any space’s acoustics.
‘Øut Øf The Wørld’, as the tracks sampling suggests, kicks our asses all the way to another planet. The continuous bass alone is enough to get any club or party bumping, but that’s just the beginning for an expert like Marten. ‘Øut Øf The Wørld’’s operatic symphony of demonic vocals intertwined with classic synth buildups scream Acid House, and we LOVE it.
The arrangement of vocal build-ups in the track’s singing start slow, pulling listeners in and awaiting the much anticipated, reverberating deep bass to come. With the steady bass coming together towards the finale of the track, the sounds can only be reminiscent of that moment late at night in your favorite underground European club. Think Two or Three a.m., eyes closed, lasers and fog machines spraying you with cool air and euphoric light until the break of dawn.
The next track brings on a few similarities, but a vastly different feel. ‘All Aløne’ may be the name of the second song from this highly anticipated EP, but you will feel anything but it while jamming out to this record. Imagine Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love’ on steroids. The Disco influence is hard to ignore, but Hørger makes it work seamlessly with his iconic and unforgettable groove and bass.
As Alice DeeJay asks, “do you think you’re ‘Better off Aone’?” In this case, if you can’t be in a club getting weird and wild to this track, it will still let you get there with your small COVID crew. This hip mover utilizes beautiful undertones of choppiness to climax in an unexpected introduction of hard-hitting treble and, of course, bass.
Both tracks are super unique and will be on repeat for us at Heard It Here First for some time to come. We look forward to seeing Marten Hørger on the Confession label’s ‘Best of 2021’ list, and think our listeners will agree. Which track are you pumping out on your speaker systems?
