In a highly anticipated collab, Austrian hit duo Harris & Ford joins forces with Dutch dance music heavyweights Bassjackers, enforced by the vocal strength of Norwegian singer-songwriter Rebecca Helena. The result is “Psycho,” a moody piece of rave music, featuring heavy triplets, ominous chords and inventive songwriting, sure to blow your mind as well as provide a fresh dose of festival energy. Yes, they’ll make you go a little bit “Psycho,” but it’s definitely worth the ride, out now on Spinnin’ Records.
Harris & Ford have a taste for lighting up festival stages, renowned as they are for blending hardstyle sounds with formidable EDM vibes. This has led to nonstop hits, including 2020 smash “Nachbarn” and last year’s rave anthem “Irrenhaus,” resulting in tens of millions of streams and lit performances at the biggest club and festival stages.
Conquering the world from their Austrian/German background, Harris & Ford’s Dutch counterpart Bassjackers have traveled a similar triumphal path. Known as a trusted source of international big room hits since the late zeroes, Bassjackers grew out to become one of the world’s biggest dance duos, every year climbing the DJ Top 100 ranking and releasing much praised festival gems, including joint efforts with Martin Garrix, Afrojack, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and KSHMR.
“Psycho” is the dreamed result when these two trendsetting acts strike up a collab. Add in the vocal talents of Norwegian born, Berlin based singer-songwriter Rebecca Helena, and the record quickly takes off, draped over pulsating bass chords and heavy triplet beats.
Diving into the chorus, “Psycho” invokes an ominous melody, dark rhythm and Helena’s soaring vocals, admitting ‘you make me go a little bit psycho.’ As her lyrics continue to captivate, the powerhouse production team adds thrilling effects and subtle throwbacks to the track’s cinematic inspiration.
Add to this the immaculate electronic sound design both Harris & Ford and Bassjackers are known for, and you’ve got a destined festival favorite on your hands. A true crowd-pleaser, especially when the party is at full swing, while its dark elements provide it with just the right amount of raw undertones. It’s gonna be one hell of a summer, and we’ll all go a little bit “Psycho” with this one.
