With over twenty years of experience on the house music circuit and following the recent success of the Dim Mak-released “Lost Your Groove” alongside Junior Sanchez, Dutch duo Chocolate Puma bring a masterful dark bassline set to a driving 4/4 on their newest vocal track “The Max.”
The track picks up with a plucking guitar riff before sliding into the silver-tongued vocals provided by UK rapper Kris Kiss. Once the drop hits, the combination of low end beats and rhythmic lyrics proves kinetic.
Two of The Netherlands’ most celebrated electronic producers with more than 200 releases under their belt, Chocolate Puma is a duo whose relentless influence on the modern dance music scene cannot be underestimated. This year, the tandem released their hallmark bass maneuvers on a bevy of top-drawer imprints such as Spinnin, Size, Cr2, Mixmash and Dim Mak, as well as boothed up at festivals like Mysteryland and Veld. Their most recent Dim Mak offering “Lost Your Groove” peaked at #1 on DMC’s Buzz Chart before its street date in May, and was the perfect followup to their 2014 label release “Rubberband Lazer” which garnered support from DJs as diverse as Avicii, Nicky Romero, Zeds Dead and Pete Tong.
Kris Kiss’ recent success comes in the form of his work with Don Diablo on the electro hiphouse resonant “Chain Reaction,” which landed at #4 on the Beatport House chart and #7 on the Top 100. Kris’ chops were also lent to the vocal edition of Laidback Luke, Shelco Garcia and Teenwolf’s future house club hit “Outerspace (XXX).” He makes his Dim Mak debut with “The Max,” following a previous collaboration with the Dutch duo on last year’s “Step Back.”
