Electro | Chris Varvaro’s “Meant That” A Strong Continuation Of A Familiar Sound

Posted by on February 25, 2020

“Meant That” is a refreshing change of pace as harder sounds seem to take over more parts of the dance music public conscienceness. Embracing light trap accents with a soft synth and gentle vocal experience, the single easily pushes you through catchy arrangement as Mallory and Varvaro show their creative energy.

“I  wrote “Meant That” about my ex who I met in Israel summer 2018. We literally went one week never being apart after we met, and then I had to fly back to the USA.  We made plans to meet in New York city (that ultimately never came true). The lyrics say “made plans to meet up in Central Park, hoping that it comes true” I did have a hard time falling asleep – after we said goodbye and I flew back to Nashville with the lyrics “don’t like to sleep, if you’re not by my side.” I really had a hard time being apart after we left, I was so in love and suffered once I returned not knowing when we’d see each other again, or how to make a long-distance relationship work.”

– Davis Mallory

Collectively Chris Varvaro and David Mallory have collectively garnered multi-millions of plays, dozens of track-support moments from A-list acts, produced records for top 40-artists, and much more. The force of these two together means the sky is the limit with this one.

Electro | Birthdayy Partyy Go Electro On “Befriend or Destroy”

Posted by on January 24, 2020

We’ve covered Birthdayy Partyy since their inception in January of 2018. Since then they’ve churned out an astonishing amount of tracks, both originals and remixes, all of which have been magnificent. To kick off their third year they have dropped the free download “Befriend or Destroy” and showed off their electro chops. Whatever genre they put their mind to, they conquer and I’m so happy to see them do something special within the midtempo space that’s familiar, but a bit off kilter from what everyone else is doing with the style. Make sure to add this one to your party playlists because it is a HIT!
