Los Angeles house producer Antonio Giacca’s latest big room release on PinkStar Records is rightfully making waves. “Calm Down” employs a novel concept that the tech house world has long understood and mainstream EDM has too often ignored: subtlety. Before breaking into inevitable chords and builds, Giacca judiciously teases the listener with vocal and synth snippets over a menacing bass line. The result? Tension builds and bombastic elements sound foreseen, rather than forced, when they finally reach anticipating ears. Aspiring producers, take note. Catch this single on Beatport now, because it’s bound for some serious airplay ahead.
