DJ Megzz is a 24 year old DJ/Producer from Raleigh NC, who produces EDM, House, and Dance music. Megzz started making music after struggling with depression and anxiety. After a thirty day rehab stay Megzz found his love for making music and has been happy ever since. He has recently dropped his latest track “Firefly”, a melancholic and melodic Tropical House tune with a mesmerizing chorus. It clear from this recording that DJ Megzz actually has a sharper ear for melodies than most electronic producers, and there are plenty of quality ones around. The key though, is what he constructs around these melodies is captivatingly smooth, relying on a shimmering piano, soft pad synths and rolling percussion.
This richly layered production beautifully contrasts the wistful vocals that ensnares and traps the listeners’ senses in a sort of luxurious rhythmic limbo from which they will never want to get out of.
“Firefly” is close to being a perfect Tropical track, and in an era when so many superstar DJs and producers seem divorced from the actual songwriting aspect of music DJ Megzz deserves the praise for going a few steps further than the standard fare. He makes a strong statement showcasing his potential and vision for the future of deep house music.
The piano backing is something outstanding and so is the chiming beat, while the singer’s deep and sullen intonations bring a warm and unexpected texture to this highly controlled harmonic environment. A great deal of the track’s engaging potential is gained from the simple but colorful lyrics, which deliver a sweet and touching inspiration to the track.
While deep house may have a dark vibe sometimes, tropical house is generally euphoric, relaxing and downtempo, and this is exactly the mood that DJ Megzz captures in this recording.
If you’ve been anywhere close to electronic music over the last couple of years, chances are that you’ve noticed a change in the kind of music that’s dominating the charts, and being produced by a lot of talented artists. Chances are that you have also heard and been impressed with the beautiful tropical vibes.
“Firefly” is a track that definitely transits within the tropical house space, with its mellow piano hooks, lush synth layers, a catchy percussion rhythm, and a smooth dancey vibe. Overall, the track is technically sound and makes for a great listen because of its plush arrangement, sound and excellent vocals.
Everything is composed in a way by DJ Megzz that creates a truly magical moment. This track was an absolute surprise for me and I think it might just surprise you too.
