Date Shakes’ immediately begins with a wholly enchanting ambiance, and prominently features this infectiously feelgood, funky tone throughout its entirety. Wispy vocals, courtesy of Bristol-based artist Matt Preston, are quickly introduced into the jazzy sonic space, adding an atmospherically heady touch that is paired flawlessly alongside the anthemic tune’s soaring instrumentation. Trumpet horns, drums, and propulsive production elements characterize the rest of this larger-than-life musical offering, a quintessential lively hybrid of electronic dance music and expertly executed live performance.

“’Date Shakes’ is inspired by a midsummer sunset overlooking Crystal Cove State Park and the bittersweet memories of a love long past.” – Intro To Music Theory

“It was an honor and my privilege to collaborate with IMT. As a fan, I was excited to hear the tracks before the rest of the world. ‘Date Shakes’ captures your attention early and never lets you go. The smooth melodies allow me to take my mind to a better time with friends I love and people I care for. May it bring the same to you the listener as well!” – Matt Preston, vocalist
