Lookas collaborates with Krewella for “Alarm”

Miami-based producer Lookas has been steadily teasing fans with songs from his forthcoming EP on Monstercat, Lucid, first releasing the track “Eclipse”, a bass-driven banger with dark, wonking rhythms. The second single from the EP, “Alarm” shows a lighter side to the three-track work. Teaming up with dynamic duo Krewella, Lookas embraces a more pop-style production with “Alarm”, as the tunes nostalgic guitar strums lead into a smooth drop of hi-hats and sharp pumps of bass. “Alarm” also marks Lookas’ first vocal track since releasing his four-time platinum hit “GDFR” alongside Flo Rida and Sage the Gemini back in 2015.

 

Lookas has been an impressive talent in the dance music world since his introduction, rising as a self-taught producer in 2013 and immediately having his remix of “Tsunami” by DVBBS and Borgeous picked up as an official remix. Having been named a Top 10 Act to Watch by Rolling Stone and a Top 10 Rising Artist by Billboard, Lookas continues to show audiences what he’s made of. Fans have yet to see all of the phenomenal tricks up Lookas’s sleeve, but each release from his EP on Monstercat, Lucid can give just a little taste on the punch he’s packing.

 

Chicago-bred and LA-based act Krewella are no strangers to working with Lookas or Monstercat. Lookas produced their recent single “Be There,” proving the already existing synergy among the artists, meanwhile Monstercat has been home to Krewella’s early successful single “Killin’ It” and “Superstar” with Pegboard Nerds & NGHTMRE. The duo just wrapped up their North American ‘New World’ tour, which took on nearly 30 cities by storm with support from Crankdat, Party Favor, Shaun Frank, Unlike Pluto, Wavedash and more.

Although the show had a last minute change from The Fillmore Miami Theater to The Ground Miami (Club Space), stage production and high-energy levels was nothing short of amazing. In fact, my neck still hurts two days later from head-banging so hard, and I’m not even mad about. On Friday night, Oct. 20th, Krewella put on a show like they’re at a festival, and got the crowd singing along their loudest to every song. From their hit singles “Alive” and “Live For The Night,” to “Broken Record” and “New World” featuring Yellow Claw, the girls performed numerous popular tracks from their first album to their last EP.

The girls came out for an encore performace of “Team” and Yasmine even rapped their Krewella rendition of “Old Kanye,” which was something that only the core Krew fans understood. Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a chilling campaign shower from Jahan, mosh pits and sweaty hugs with the fans during their meet and greet.

Krewella also teased one of their highly-anticipated unreleased tracks, “Dead AF,” which they revealed will be dropped later this week.

Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf dropped the track today, which will be featured in their New World Part 2 EP, following the first edition.
