Dirtyphonics Teams Up With Circadian For Debut Collaboration, “You Want Me”

Two highly-respected forces of the Drum & Bass circuit, Dirtyphonics and Circadian, today unite for the electric record “You Want Me,” out on Monstercat Uncaged.

Dirtyphonics has solidified their position as one of the leading acts of the bass music scene with millions of streams across their releases, including Monstercat classics “Hammer” and “Sight Of Your Soul” with Sullivan King. They’ve taken their distinctive heavy basslines and pulse-pounding beats around the globe to festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Tomorrowland, EDC Las Vegas, and venues such as Hollywood Palladium, Ministry of Sound, Stereo Live, and more. The duo has worked with top names in the music industry like Linkin Park, Skrillex, Kaskade, Marilyn Manson, and received critical acclaim amongst the masses from media outlets such as Rolling Stone, Alternative Press, and MusicTech. The unveiling of “You Want Me” as the final single from their highly anticipated sophomore album, following singles “Revenge” with Bossfight and “Burbank Nights,” is bound to push them further into the spotlight.

Circadian, formerly one-half of The Prototypes, has been dominating the circuit for the last year with tracks like “The Outlines” with Koven, which landed in Fortnite, and “Mesmer” with SOTA and Mila Falls. Prior to embarking solo, he reached significant success with multi-million streamed tracks like “Kill The Silence” with Ayah Marar and “Reason” with LOWES. He’s graced the decks at venues and events like RESPECT Drum and Bass in Los Angeles, Pulsation in Slovakia, Garfinkel’s in Whistler, and more.

Drawing inspiration from their early rave days, “You Want Me” unfolds with a music box being rewound. The invigorating shift in pace during the build-ups unearths an ambiance reminiscent of journeying to an alternate dimension across time. Symbolizing emotions between nostalgia and the future, the lyrics, “You want me, I want you,” resonate with the universal human experience of aspiring to become one’s ideal self. Charged with electrifying tempos and thumping Drum & Bass elements, “You Want Me” is destined to command festival season this year.

Dirtyphonics shares, “Working with Circadian was a breeze. We’ve known Chris (Circadian) for a long time through his other project, The Prototypes, and we have followed his new project closely from the start. We played his songs at every show this past summer and we knew we wanted to do something with him. “You Want Me” felt like a great opportunity to do it. We sent Chris a demo and he vibed on it straight away. He then added his vibe and we loved where it took the song which made it easy to finish.”

Circadian adds, “Dirtyphonics for me have always been a true powerhouse of style and epic productions, so when I was asked by Charley and Pitchin to colab for a track on their album, I was all in! I’m so pleased with the outcome, we were on the same vibe the whole way through making something that would work in our sets to cause maximum damage on the dancefloor while being able to bring musicality into the intro which suits both our styles, it was a dream and I’m very proud to of worked with these legends and for it to be landing on Monstercat.”

This year, Dirtyphonics will be heading to Tomorrowland, Dream Beach Festival, Parookaville, with more to be announced, while fans can catch Circadian at his first EU headline show at Storm Club in Prague on March 16th.
