DFNSE is a Parsian electronic music producer, whose work frequently meshes elements of French touch, funk and pop. He has participated in producer battles alongside emerging artists like BlackDoe, Ikaz Boi, and Varnish La Piscine before releasing his debut EP, 2015’s Pandorium, an effort inspired by the SoundCloud Future House scene.
In 2016, the rising Parisian producer released material through Darker Than Wax, Souletiquettte and Nowadays Records, who released a single on their Oceans compilation and his sophomore EP Moonrock, which featured his biggest song to date, “Show You.”
Released earlier this year, the rising French producer’s latest EP Symphony Road features:
- “Getaway,” a breezy, 80s-inspired summertime bop featuring Aussie vocals AKA Lui’s plaintive falsetto floating over twinkling keys, a strutting bass line, some Nile Rodgers-like funk guitar, an irresistible, two-step inducing groove and an infectious hook. And while being a club friendly banger, the song is an escapist fantasy of summer, full of seemingly carefree, sultry days and nights, hanging out with friends, vacations and meet-cutes at rooftop bars, the beach and clubs.
- “Good Enough,” is a sultry and strutting bop seemingly indebted to French touch, alt pop, and R&B centered around a slick production featuring glistening synth arpeggios, skittering beats, and an euphoric hook paired with Senpu’s achingly vulnerable delivery. The song details a swooning, flirtatious and vulnerable declaration of desire, love and human need — whether for a night or forever.
“Let It Go,” Symphony Road‘s latest single is a slickly produced and breezy bop featuring French musician Hoodie Boy that’s sonically one-part French touch, one-part disco, one part-funk centered around tweeter and woofer rattling boom bap, some Nile Rodgers-like funk guitar, glistening synth arpeggios and a strutting bass line paired with DFNSE’s uncannily unerring knack for infectious hooks. It’s the sort of upbeat bop that should shake you out of the doldrums and get you working towards a dance floor.
