With backing from the likes of Tiësto, Don Diablo, Martin Garrix and Swedish House Mafia, Dutch outfit Magnificence have superb pedigree. They’re back with another explosive jam in the form of ‘Closer,’ ready to destroy closing parties and final summer festivals across the globe.
Bristling with cutting-edge production, ‘Closer‘ takes the best elements of rowdy electro house and bass music and mashes them together with totally indefinable sounds and textures. It’s a dark yet playful track, characterised by warped, cutting basstones, chunky beats and a spooky synth sounds.
To celebrate this superb track, the duo are also launching a Closer Challenge, where they encourage their fanbase to “come closer” together and create a sense of unity among themselves. Fans are asked to check out the teaser video and respond to it with a continuation of the theme, filming a close-up of themselves with two black or white Xs on their eyes and sharing inspirational messages alongside it. This can be a solo effort—like a message on a white paper, or something more elaborate alongside friends. They want fans to submit life lessons, messages and good advice that they’d like to share with the world. The results will be compiled into one uplifting video to be launched during ADE.
