Purari & MAKJ
Working together for their latest track, ‘Beast’, Purari and MAKJ have teamed up to create an intensely head-turning track with a powerful drive and momentum. Purari has already released ‘Break Your Back’ featuring Waka Flocka on Laidback Luke’s label, Mixmash, and had his tracks played at Tomorrowland, EDC and Ultra Music Festival. Meanwhile, MAKJ has appeared at iconic festival slots across the country; playing at Ultra Miami in 2013 and 2014 and performing at the inaugural 2013 TomorrowWorld event in Georgia.
The track begins with high-pitched jabs that gather momentum and increase adrenaline, whilst a voice states: “you have five seconds to terminate this tape”. ‘Beast’ then activates, with fierce beats and synths dominating, before a tempo change slows the tune and transforms it momentarily. Nurturing placid synths, it still follows the same melody and hook but with a delicate approach. The track is extremely dynamic; adding anthemic synth into the mix then used to speed up the tempo once more before we’re receiving another taste of ‘Beast’.
With an impressive roster of support behind MAKJ, his edits, bootlegs and remixes have earned massive praise from the likes of Afrojack, Chuckie, Avicii, Nicky Romero, David Guetta and many more. His track with Hardwell, ‘Countdown’ that was released in 2013, also soared to the top spot on the Beatport charts just days after its release, now amassing over 11 million plays.
