Dustee & Monotape add their darker shade of melodic techno to Touliver’s ‘Kính Vạn Hoa’

Already having one successful release under their belt via ‘New Normal’, seems like Dustee and Monotape are hooked on producing even more hits for a vibrant Vietnamese summer. This time, they join forces once again in providing a melodic techno spin on the track ‘Kính Vạn Hoa’ (meaning ‘kaleidoscope’ in English) by Touliver featuring Tiên Tiên on vocals.

Released today, August 12, via Dusted Recordings, label leader Dustee — also considered “The Godfather” of Vietnam’s dance music scene — teams up for a second time with Monotape, who we included in our 2020 “Asia Rising” list. The two complement each other and tessellate perfectly when it comes to music, evident in their darker shade of sound that echoes through the almost-five-minute remix.

As distinguished in his well-known ‘Vintage Mix’ series, Dustee continues to showcase his seasoned career in the country's (growing electronic) music scene and brings along his deep house influences into Touliver’s original track, further increasing its atmospheric vibe to gyrate across the dance floors to. We also definitely recognise Monotape’s personal touches, perceptible in the track’s futuristic and industrial appeal.

Blending beautifully with Tiên Tiên’s alluring yet powerful vocals, the constant bass that resounds right from the get-go steadies us as dark, playful synths trill throughout the track. Add on the mind-altering sound effects and the punchy drop around the one-minute mark and you’ve found yourself immersed in a kaleidoscopic sonic experience.
