Following on from a run of individual releases, HUGEL and BLOND:ISH join forces with reggaeton artist Nfasis to release ‘Tra Tra’, a track which has apparently been popular on dancefloors from Circoloco to EXIT Festival all summer.
The track has been reimagined into a club-ready rework of Nfasis’ original. Gliding between Latin house, Afro house and a driving dance beat, it has found its way into the record bags of DJs across the globe.
A collaboration with three artists teaming up from varying ends of the musical spectrum, HUGEL has aimed to stamp his mark across all radio, clubs and streaming platforms. Aiming to blur the lines between radio friendly and club bangers, the French artist has received the blessing from Diplo, FISHER and Robin Schulz just to name a few.
Now with over 1 billion streams to his name, multiple gold and platinum awards, HUGEL boasts a following with over 6.5 million monthly listeners, 500k followers across social media and label releases across Toolroom Records, Insomniac, Defected (D4DANCE), Spinnin’ and Repopulate Mars.
HUGEL: “In the beginning we just wanted to experiment some Afro/Amapiano drums and then we had the idea to mix it with a Reggaeton vocal. The sonic of this tune is very unique. It's a mix of a lot of different genre that never really been blended together. Collaborating with BLOND:ISH who is my favourite female DJ right now, and Nfasis a legend of the Reggaeton scene is a beautiful way to end this amazing year.”
