Kicking off with the upbeat and driving persona of the title cut ‘By The Rhythm’, Lauthals and Matthias come together to carve out an undeniably energetic and captivating peak-time club cut with hard-hitting 4/4 grooves, huge vocal injections and pleasantly piercing musicality from the outset.
Alex rides solo on ‘My Body’, delivering a percussive-focused rolling tech number with pulsating harmonies and roaring low-end cadence from start to finish. Another sturdy display of capable drums, prime dancefloor energy and head-turning vocal presence, completing the EP with another top-tier production built for demanding big room club spaces and huge sound systems.
