phonewifey and ODG revive EDM’s golden era with dance-floor weapon ‘Turn It Down’

"Somewhere between Ke$ha-style party pop, Tomorrowland EDM and blown-out 808 club-trap..."

phonewifey’s output this year has been nothing short of sensational, so it’s hardly surprising that the underground internet force is back again with a brand new offering.

Teaming up with London-based trance and hardstyle producer extraordinaire ODG, ‘Turn It Down’ is a dance-floor anthem reminiscent of EDM’s heyday. Both artists have been a staple of London’s underground club scene and this collaboration is sure to be lighting up basement and warehouse dance-floors this summer.

“I’d been wanting to work with ODG since I first heard them DJ at a night we were both involved with earlier this year,” says phonewifey. “They were making a blend of super bright and euphoric trance with some elements of booming 808 bass production and little segues into big-room EDM and hardstyle. We pretty instantly connected over music and agreed to send eachother some stuff and get working on a project together.

“The result is ‘Turn it Down’: a track that pitches somewhere between Ke$ha-style party pop, Tomorrowland EDM and blown-out 808 club-trap. ODG sent me what felt almost like an already complete piece of club music, which I then responded to by recording vocals and adding some bass and synths for a breakdown. Once we had both had our input the track really felt like a true dance-pop hybrid.”

The new single arrives after the release of ‘Lullaby’ earlier in the month, featuring fellow underground talents Mayh3mp & capoxxo. Combining phonewifey’s dreamy production and infectious hooks with capoxxo and Mayh3mp’s inimitable vocal style, the track is a wistful and melancholic song about romance and loss and marked the first of an exciting run of releases of which ‘Turn It Down’ is the latest.
