SAINT WKND & MAX Leave Us Breathless With Their Latest Single "Survive"

09 September 2017 - - The DJ List


Ultra Records just added yet another gem to their roster of star-studded tracks, brought to you by SAINT WKND and vocalist MAX. Following the release of the heavyweight's debut EP "Golden Youth", the 22 year-old producer has shown us that everything he touches turns to gold- hailing from humble beginnings of being a bedroom producer to having play counts nesting alongside numbers well over 25 million. However, after his collaboration with MAX, he proves that his touch turns things into something better than gold: platinum.

"Survive" is as heavy as it gets- every word of MAX's stuttery vocal line jabbing us right in the soul. Jam-packed with eerie synths, a glitchy, SAM GELLAITRY-esque build up that's bound to send shivers down your spine and kick-filled drop that's nothing short of stellar, it's gonna be hard to "survive" after you hear this one (see what I did there?).

“‘Survive’ started as an instrumental that I wrote between studio sessions in London. I was just playing around with an arpeggiator at first, liking how it sounded so weird. I sent a package of different beats over to MAX to see if he liked any, and included this one. It was a real surprise when he chose it, it’s so different. Working with him has been amazing - his vocal range is simply insane. As soon as he sent me his first vocals, the whole production for the song fell into place”-SAINT WKND

With "Survive" in full effect and a stellar performance at this year's Electric Zoo to kick off his tour with WHETHAN, SAINT WKND has an exciting couple of months ahead.
