Australia seems to have a never-ending export of incredible electronic artists. The latest to spark our interest is production and DJ duo Ghosted. Made up of Brisbane’s Emily and Sarah, the two connected after meeting in University and bonding over their love for music. After working on a few projects together, their chemistry was too strong to ignore, which led them to officially joining forces as Ghosted. As resident DJs at The Met & GPO in Brisbane, they’ve shared stages with the likes of Mija, Enshway, Quix and Hydraulix. Over the past few months they’ve dropped a slew of great remixes including ‘Supernatural,’ ‘Paris’ and ‘Savage’.
Today we have the pleasure of premiering their newest track, the aptly titled ‘Boss’. The blend of pitched rap vocals and hypnotizing synths pull you in from the jump. As the drums hit, the verses pick-up, kicking up the intensity early on. Wonked-out pounding drops pack a What So Not-esq style with a swagged-out twist. The mixture of wild and weird trap and rap make this one an instant smash. To get inside their heads we asked what exactly they want listeners to get from the tune, “It’s a pretty out there song, but we’re both quite quirky and like to incorporate that element into our music, we want it to be catchy and something to remember from a night out and hope people will just randomly be walking to their bus and start singing – ‘Imma boss, imma imma true boss’ haha. We just want them to enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it :).” You can stream the track below and be sure to cop that free download.
With a release as impressive as ‘Boss’ under their belts, we’ll be keeping a keen eye on what Ghosted has in store for the remainder of the year. They’re currently working on an EP which promises “diversity,” so keep your eyes and ears open. Be sure to follow Ghosted on Facebook so you don’t miss anything!
