Based between two major US cities, Los Angeles and New York, Emotionalist Music founder, DJ and producer Jonny Sum offers up a new heavy hitting single this August in the shape of ‘I Don’t Want To Feel This Way!’.
Coming up under the new wave electronic underground that swept the united states over the past decade, Jonny Sum has cut his teeth as a DJ and as a staple of the Brooklyn electronic music scene in recent years, playing alongside the likes of Justin Strauss, Aroop Roy and Moon Boots among others. Recent years also saw Jonny launch his own label as a platform for his productions, formerly entitled Mixed Feelings Music, the label now continues under the aptly titled Emotionalist Music to present high octane ecstatic dance floor cuts from the label boss himself and others.
Leading is the original mix of ‘I Don’t Want To Feel This Way!’’, laid out across five and a half minutes with a cinematic, rave tinged piano hook to pull on the heart strings, a boomy low-end drive, choppy synth flutters and a high-pitched vocal uttering the track’s title, while a sturdy rhythmic drive further fuels the peak time dance floor appeal.
A ‘Dub Mix’ is also on offer, as the name would suggest shifting focus towards the airy piano keys, gritty bass and thunderous drums while dubbing out fragments of the original vocal.
