Elaksi Brings Bass-Heavy Heat With "Shining" [Free Download]

Elaksi is back and I couldn't be happier. I've been delving into his music quite a bit recently and I have to say, there is something special going on with this Finnish producer. Utilizing the "Everyday" sample made popular by Rusko (for which he used One Republic's "All The Right Moves"), Elaksi gives the phrase a new meaning while peppering it over a powerful Jersey Club rhythm. He avoids the typical bed squeak sample that has become a staple in that scene and delivers an ethereal and downtempo tune that emotes all types of reaction.


While maintaining a strong presence, "Shining" still has the ability to sit as a great head-bobbing tune, yet there's certain elements about it that also make it a banger in the right setting. With that being said, this track will give your speakers a work out, but it's certainly worth it. Blending styles can usually be a risk, but Elaksi pulled it off with ease on this release, and the best part is that he also put it out as a free download, so be sure to capitalize on that! Enjoy below!
