no sleep – Born To Lose (feat. Gia Koka)
After nearly half a year with no new treats from Pittsburgh propducer No Sleep, I somehow managed to miss the news of a debut original earlier this month. My jaw dropped when I encountered Born To Lose today, then my heart melted into a puddle to the emotive beauty of this atmospheric future bass song. Dutch songbird Gia Koka’s sorrowful vocals only added to the effect. Born To Lose is a tour de force electronic anthem. It cuts to the bone yet drives us to sweet heights of euphoria with sleek synths and thundering drums. No Sleep’s first original is colossal. We need more originals from this producer. Stat.
