Fresh off his monster track "Tomahawk" alongside BT and out on Armin Van Buuren's Armind imprint, ADAM K drops a serious bomb with a tough main room prog stormer. After a brief hiatus, Hotbox Digital returns with an absolute monster of a track that showcases our very own DVAS “Questions” getting the royal remix treatment.
This mix has been getting serious heat from Adam's SiriusXM Radio show, and Podcast, as well as in his live sets.
Also included on the trance tip from Toronto's rising talent Enton Mushi who brings a driving, melodic remix that layers the lush vocal over rolling percussion and smooth chord progressions.
Lastly, 2 time Juno award winner James Bradshaw gives us a more chilled out, luscious club mix perfect for early night grooves or terrace vibes that brilliantly showcases DVAS' rich vocals over moody, memorable synths.
Cadence Weapon is pointing the way toward his third album, Hope in Dirt City out May 29th. "Conditioning" the video shot by Evan Prosofsky (Grimes/Oblivion) and directed by Tim Kelly premiered this week at The Fader along with the track that's available for download.
