Stacking up hit after hit with Future Rave, MORTEN is finally releasing his highly anticipated solo track “No Good.” After shattering the dance scene for the past two years, selling out the opening night of Hï Ibiza’s Future Rave residency as well as Exchange LA and Brooklyn Mirage, MORTEN’s solo revival is something that has been on everyone’s mind.
MORTEN has always kept an iconic trademark, combining melodic sounds with the heart-throbbing beats of underground dance music. Bringing real change to the dance scene with Future Rave, MORTEN is now flying solo on “No Good.” After teasing the track in some of his sets, he left worldwide crowds speculating about a track everyone was keen to see him release.
Out on Tiësto’s Musical Freedom, “No Good” has clearly been well worth the wait. Sampling The Prodigy’s iconic 1994 track “No Good (Start The Dance),” MORTEN gives one of his biggest inspirations a new twist. Kicking off with a high energy riff, the enchanting topline soon sets in and the vocal leads into a thumping synth which combined with an accelerating drum, drive the track into a pulsating and orbicular bass heavy drop.
On the track, MORTEN says: “The Prodigy have always been a big inspiration for me, the first concert I ever went to was to see them back when I was 14 and I have admired their work ever since. Using the sample of one of their songs for my first solo track in a long time seemed like the perfect choice as they have inspired me for so many years. This track is really important to me and being able to tie it to The Prodigy is an honor for me.”
In the middle of a packed festival summer, MORTEN can be caught on a stage in nearly every European country, and every Friday at Hï Ibiza with good friend David Guetta for their 18-week long Future Rave residency.
