A sexy house anthem sounding catchy as hell
Friday, 20 October 2023 – Brazilian superstar Öwnboss has teamed up with fellow Brazilian DJ & producer Outflux on their sexy house anthem ‘Preacher’, released on Tomorrowland Music today! ‘Preacher’ is infused with Öwnboss’ signature bass house groove and lush vocals by the Los Angeles-based vocalist No/Me, immediately bringing a fresh vibe, sounding catchy as hell as it keeps moving on tasty bass lines and synth-heavy chords.
‘Preacher’ by Öwnboss & Outflux is part of a collection of specially curated festival releases by Tomorrowland Music leading up to Tomorrowland Brasil, celebrating the return of Tomorrowland to Brazil on October 12-14, 2023 by gathering some of the most prominent artists in electronic music on Tomorrowland’s record imprint.
Öwnboss:“I’ve been working with Outflux for years, he’s a talented Brazilian producer who became a friend. So, we are always talking and ‘Preacher’ caught my attention from the beginning. When I heard it for the first time, it was already great. The vocals of the super talented and hit maker No/Me were incredible and I knew I could add a lot in terms of production. From then on, we adjusted the project and got in touch with Tomorrowland Music as we knew it would fit perfectly with the label. The production of ‘Preacher’ was challenging. How to musicalize a song with such a sonorous, pure and striking vocal? Our job, then, was not to fight with it, but cooperate and join efforts. In other words, we looked for a production that worked in favor of the track’s vocals, so that it was the protagonist; where the melodic progression and synths were present, important and catchy, but that didn’t never steal the spotlight from the voice. So we made the entire song based on the vocals and the synth drop, which in my opinion is the highlight of this song.”
Outflux: “We wanted the drop to sound powerful, but catchy, so we decided to use a unique type of sound for the main lead. We went after something that sounded cool, but also different, and that’s when we came up with this heavily distorted lo-fi type of sound. We used No/Me’s vocals a lot for the ear candies, we re-pitched a couple of ad libs, made some weird sounding stuff, and made it fit into the drop. The final result turned out awesome.”
Öwnboss was nominated by One World Radio by Tomorrowland in their list of the 20 Most Promising Artists for 2022 and it came true. He is the artist behind the super hot track ‘Move Your Body’ and the 2nd most streamed DJ in Brazil, his country, with more than 7 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
His killer track was the world’s 4th most played song of the year according to 1001 Tracklists, topping the Bass House releases on Beatport for 11 months straight. Crossing 1 billion streams across all platforms so far and being featured on the official soundtrack of EA Sports Formula 1 game, Öwnboss won the ‘Best Bass House Song Of The Year’ at the 2022 EDM Awards with ‘Move Your Body’.
Besides his latest releases ‘Papapo’ and ‘Left & Right’, Öwnboss also released amazing remixes like ‘The Motto’ by Tiësto, ‘Crazy What Love Can Do’ by David Guetta and ‘The Drop’ by Dimitri Vegas. His music is present in very important labels like Spinnin’ Records, Ultra Records and is currently exclusively signed to Tiësto’s Musical Freedom.
As far as shows are concerned, he has performed at big clubs and festivals such as Tomorrowland’s Mainstage, Rock In Rio, Lollapalooza, Creamfields, Ushuaïa Ibiza, Parookaville Festival, F*** Me I’m Famous, Green Valley, Laroc Club, So Track Boa Festival and many others around the world.
Outflux is the project of the musician Rafa Vieira, born and raised in the city of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil. Owner of a unique sound, which fluctuates between Piano House, Tech House, Progressive and Melodic House & Techno, Outflux has been drawing attention from the market with his songs being played in the sets of great DJs around the world such as Tiësto, Vintage Culture, Tchami, Öwnboss and Dubdogz.
At just 22 years old, he has already released tracks on HUB (Sony Music), Soave Records and REVEN BEATS. His last two singles were released in collaboration with Jetlag Music, a rework cover for Kate Bush’s timeless hit “Running Up That Hill”, and Öwnboss, the Brazilian hitmaker of the moment, respectively. OUTFLUX is certainly a name to watch out in 2023 and to keep an eye on!
