House | Dim Mak welcomes Ekonovah with debut house original “Wait A Minute”

Posted by on March 20, 2019

Newcomer Ekonovah is a name you’re going to want to start following. “Wait a Minute” released today on Aoki’s legendary EDM label Dim Mak has that unique, addicting buildup and rhythm that stands out in a sea of recent similar sounding bass-house tracks. Take three minutes and give this a listen then grab the free download.

Wait A Minute was so fun to write. I made it pretty fast, in only 3 sessions or so. I became really inspired by the idea of oscillating back and forth from this grandiose reverb to a dry, dampened sound which I’ve since been implementing in a lot of my tracks. Once I found those horn hits which occur before the second drop and outro, that’s when the full idea really solidified into a cohesive track. Suddenly, it had this fun ‘x-factor’ that crowds respond to really well during my sets!”
