The composer and producer of digital dance music known as David Smith has released his debut single, “Sensation.” The track represents Smith’s electronica masterpiece for the start of the 2015 year and showcases him as one of Europe’s most promising up-and-coming digital musicians by a long stretch. With an extremely strong repertoire available for listening at his official website and his debut single, “Sensation” available for purchase and download around the world, things are sure looking up for this surprise EDM genius from the Kingdom of Belgium.
David Smith (who has an English name but natively speaks French) cites as main artistic influences many of heroes of the DJ subculture, including David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Avicii, and Martin Garrix.
Smith writes about his start in music, “I like the styles of David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Martin Garrix and others like them. And one day, I said to myself: ‘I can make good tracks like theirs!’ and for one year I made an album in my little home studio.”
It was a humble beginning, but clearly the start of something more than a simple hobby. The music fan’s first listen of “Sensation” is not likely to be his last. In fact, the second and third listen are probably to follow immediately afterward. From here, curiosity leads the listener to Smith’s other tracks, of which there are already enough to fill an LP record. But the artist is taking it slow.
“Step by step…” Smith writes. “I’m starting with my first single. I have to get credibility and make my name known before launching my first album. I have to finalize some tracks with good singers and lyricists. Even if it’s my first album, I want a perfect one.”
This perfectionist’s attitude shines through in his debut single, “Sensation.” Its production is sparkling clean, its composition naturally consistent and with an upbeat, intuitive flow. Its hooks are unshakable and its four-and-a-half minutes go by in a flash. The ‘replay’ button beckons.
“I hope my singles and my future debut album will give good ‘sensations’ to listeners, as well as good beats at events and nightclubs all over the world,” writes David Smith of his new song’s overall theme. “I hope people who hear it will say, ‘Damn, that sounds good!’”
Smith goes on to describe the emotional effects he crafts his music to inspire.
“Just pump up the volume and let the beat overwhelm you,” he writes. “One day, I’d like to see thousands of dancers overwhelmed. It’s my dream, and I think that with a lot of work all dreams could come true when we really want them.”
His message to the world is simple.
“Nothing ventured, nothing gained! Look at me, I’m starting from nowhere but here I am.”
“Sensation” by David Smith is available online worldwide. Fans of EDM and electronica should definitely get in early. Very early.
