DJ Megzz: “Stop” – a potent weapon for the late-night dance floor
Written by Staff on 9 March 2017
DJ Megzz releases his brand new single “Stop” taken from his upcoming album “Symmer Dayzz”, set for official release on April 15th. The 24 year old DJ/Producer from Raleigh NC, who produces EDM, House, and Dance music, started making music after struggling with depression and anxiety. After a period of rehab Megzz found his love for making music and has been happy ever since. DJ Megzz recently surprised us with his catchy single “FireFly”, a melancholic and melodic Tropical House tune with a mesmerizing chorus. Now he has quickly followed that up with “Stop”.
DJ Megzz can pride himself on his unique style of production – from mesmerizing vocals, steady yet relentless bass kicks, and electrifying piano keys, this fool-proof method has produced overwhelmingly successful production results – and works here again. The song embodies all the characteristics of a groovy summer anthem; breaking in with pleasant sounds and soothing chord progressions, DJ Megzz has set a relaxing tone to the track.
Overall, “Stop” is not to be missed this summer. Incorporating all of DJ Megzz signature sounds and style, this will leave fans satisfied and craving more new music. Similar to his previous work, this possesses trend-setting, curve-breaking qualities that will certainly continue to catch attention in the coming months.
DJ Megzz manages to convey a lot of subtle creativity in his songs, which you will only notice if you savor them, which you’ll want to do. Just like a Sunday roast, this album is suitable (and tasty) for all palates. He is easily one of the most musically sophisticated of the current generation of dance music producers.
Soulful, sultry and entirely infectious top lines give DJ Megzz a potent weapon for the late-night dance floor. There is a wistfulness throughout as the brilliantly effervescent track, which even recalls juggernauts of the scene such as David Guetta – builds into restrained but blistering intensity. “Stop” is a floating, loungey highlight; a summer soundtrack with typical allure and a sparkling chorus.
DJ Megzz plays around with tropical house sounds, deep house, and chillout with little nods to progressive house. The resulting combinations of sounds and samples are absolutely catchy and stand on the border between crossover Pop and EDM. As with “Firefly”, DJ Megzz has produced admirable work here on “Stop”.
There are not many, if any, flagrant faults to point to on this track. The beat is steady, the samples are keys are shimmering, and the vocals are smooth counterparts to the darker bass lines. DJ Megzz’s full length album will be awaited with great anticipation.
