World-renowned DJ/producer Henry Fong and Group Chat label boss and Los Angeles-based artist JSTJR make their highly-anticipated return to the release radar for their latest collaborative offering ‘Louder’ alongside multifaceted triumvirate Ultimate Rejects. The latest single to come from Fong marks his fourth original production so far in 2021, and follows ‘Ragga Rave’, his track with SAYMYNAME from the tail end of this May, in addition to ‘Bust It’ with FOMO, released earlier this month. It also marks JSTJR and Ultimate Rejects’ first sonic offering of 2021, and serves as a direct follow-up to JSTJR and Fong’s 2020 hit ‘Arriba’, as well as his single ‘Que Lo Siento’ with Schade from April of last year. Out now on JSTJR’s Group Chat imprint Insomniac Music Group, ‘Louder’ is available to listen to across all streaming platforms.
The propelling, high-octane tune immediately kicks off with a commanding vocal cut paired alongside rolling basslines and warbly soundscapes. Boasting an appropriately fitting name, ‘Louder’ prominently features speaker-rattling production elements and a larger-than-life ambiance from start-to-finish. The soca-infused offering also possesses an enticing bass house flair unlike anything heard before, in turn effortlessly highlighting all the best qualities of the genre while equally showcasing both Fong and JSTJR’s highly impressive production prowesses, as well as Ultimate Rejects’ solid sonic artistry. Overall, the sprightly endeavor is audibly characterized by its signature hard-hitting sensibilities, and serves as an anthemic, quintessential festival rinser out right in time for mid-summer raucous revelry.
“So stoked to put this single out with my friend JSTJR, we always have fun making music together. Also was fun working with Ultimate Rejects, extremely talented artists from Trinidad!” – Henry Fong
“Working with Henry Fong is always one of the best experiences. He came to me with this dope collab he was working on with Ultimate Rejects and I was able to put my own spin on it and add that moombah vibe. I was so impressed by the music and lyrics by the Ultimate Rejects- especially the break section half way through the song. The vibes are just perfect.”– JSTJR
