Sunkissed (Vol. 1)

Posted by on November 3, 2014

Coming out of studio hibernation-mode, David Youssef (Shèmce) has released hit after hit, many of which he showcases in the first of his Sunkissed series. He has embraced Tropical House as his religion and is well on his way to shaping the future direction of this genre.
David Youssef - Stages
Volume 1 begins with a fresh, tropical squeeze of Notorious BIG’s “Juicy,” a re-fix that would have the king of flow himself vibing. Think of your favourite beach, because that’s where Shèmce wants to take you. He’s no stranger to giving a crowd what it wants; before becoming captain of the Tropical House ship, he pioneered his way into the industry as resident DJ of a small-town club. Think twice, this is the same venue that saw Skrillex, Avicii, Zedd, Dada Life, Porter Robinson, Rusko, and Benny Benassi (to name a few) bless its decks (this was also when tickets were $20 … the good ol’ days). It only makes rational sense that a producer/DJ of David’s calibre has risen through the haze of heavy bass, broken glowsticks, half-empty water bottles, and endless streams of stage-rages. He lives two lives, prescribing the right dosage of feel-good therapy during the day, and heavy dancefloor beats during the night.

Expect the unexpected, ladies and gentleman – let him take you to church. In Shèmce’s heart, its always summer and this series is a testament to his philosophy. Thanks to David for this bit of “Free Sunshine.” – we here at FNT are very excited to watch Shèmce grow in the coming months and years.
