The track immediately kicks off with glitchy, atmospherically entrancing soundscapes, and is quickly followed by XIE’s rich, textured vocal. The melodious serenading lulls the listener into a heady daze for several moments before the ground-shattering barrage of bass is introduced into the sonic space. Electro and jungle influences are fused together to create a lively combination of sheer energy unlike anything ever heard before it. The anthemic single’s intensity is also palpably raw from start-to-finish, and doesn’t ever let up until the last second. Audibly packing quite the punch, XIE and JSTJR’s newest propulsive endeavor serves as a testament to their impressive production prowesses, and is sure to get one on their feet in absolutely no time.

“$AVAGE is a self empowering high octane ride about unleashing your inner power through all of life’s madness.” – XIE
