P.H.A.T.T. – Not Today
For this release, P.H.A.T.T. (aka Pierre Pienaar) returns with a cheerier feel after a succession of singles demonstrating the darkest and hardest side that Pierre has to offer. Pierre Pienaar‘s impressive versatility comes through in this track which begins with a haunting melody over a catchy bass reminiscent of his recent work but as the track progresses and builds, a whole new dimension comes through as ‘Not Today‘ turns into a happy-go-lucky anthem with all the right vibes.
Johan Ekman‘s remix gives the track a brighter but harder side. His dirty, driving and yet euphoric and uplifting trance sound has seen him gain huge support from leading DJs including Aly & Fila, John Askew, Eddie Halliwell, W & W and Daniel Kandi.
