Mike Hawkins - Crocodile (Future House)

Mike Hawkins pushes the boundaries of electronic music with one of his most energetic tracks to date. Originally a DJ and producer from Denmark, Mike Hawkins has had some major Big Room and Future House releases in the past five years; most of which are featured on Spinnin Records. He uses a lot of big leads and pulverizing synths in his music, which makes it appropriate for large festivals. The track “Crocodile” features a lot of innovation in the rhythm and sound design. The build-up has some classic trancy synths you would see in a KSHMR or R3hab track, with some epic reverb-laden vocals and melodies. This build-up is accompanied by a very unique and unexpected drop both timing-wise and synth-wise. The drop itself features a heavy bass that hits you off-beat, layered with a strikingly raw steel drum melody. Mike plays with the rhythm of this unusual synth in the second drop as well, adding to the intensity of the track. It's refreshing to see artists expand their sound design and create unique synths like Mike Hawkins has in this track.If you’re looking for more Mike Hawkins tracks, check out his biggest release on Spinnin Records, “Lovestruck”, featuring Big Room producer Borgeous.
