Rising San Diego-based talent Casmalia makes her glorious return to the release radar with her new single, ‘Is It a Dream’.
Heavily influenced by disco, Detroit-style techno and 90’s hip hop, Casmalia’s infectious sound design can be described as bass-heavy, touching both ends of the spectrum ranging from minimal to melodic. The latest to come from the multi-faceted talent follows directly on the heels of her October-released collaborative hit ‘Escape From You’ with Sean Lafayette, which found a home on IN/ROTATION.
Kicking off with a propelling bassline, detailed percussive components and pitched down glitch-like elements, ‘Is It a Dream’ captures the listeners attention from the start. An alluring vocal cut can be heard throughout the entirety of the track, transporting listeners to a hazy soundscape, filled with mystery and intrigue.
A rising tension is slowly built, keeping listeners on the edge of their seat waiting for the next production element before unleashing a cohesive drop that features intoxicating synth-work and ebbs with clean control. Further solidifying herself as a force to be reckoned within the prospering tech-house space, ‘Is It a Dream’ serves as a premier example of Casamlia’s unique production style, setting herself apart from any other artist in the musical space.
Marking another milestone in her continuous stream of recent releases, ‘Is It a Dream’ brings fans further into Casmalia’s creative vision and musical prowess.
