What You Feel is a two track EP that brings you in to full on terrace vibes. The original mix utilizes chopped up vocal samples and carries through with a deep FM sine wave groove, while playful drums and pads act as the foundation of the break. Lush chord stabs are soon to follow propelling this one right to the heart of clubbers on the dance floor.

The Ibiza mix of What You Feel is where DJ Shu-ma’s Balearic roots really shine through. The track remains relatively unchanged, but it’s with the inclusion of an underlying piano melody that gives it an airy atmosphere and one perfectly suited for early mornings on the White Isle.

What You Feel EP is currently out on all major music retail outlets. You can preview the tracks below, and make sure to stay up to date with DJ Shu-ma and Bass Works Recordings for more music.
