GATTÜSO Release Catchy New Pop Song, "Who We Are" [Interview]
New artists break into the scene every single day. The duo GATTÜSO is comprised of Israeli DJ/producer, Reem Taoz, and American DJ/producer, Terrence “Steel” Oliver, with the duo now based in New Jersey.
Long a lover of the high-quality electronic dance music brought to his family’s nightclubs in the luxurious casinos of Lima, Peru, the young Taoz always knew he wanted to become an artist. Spending countless hours in the nightclubs where he soaked-up and studied the sounds that moved the dancefloors, Taoz’s days were also filled listening to FM radio. Music seeped into his pores until its very essence drove him to want to create music himself.
Known as “Steel” to friends and colleagues, Terrence Oliver has over 15 years of experience in the electronic dance music industry. As a highly respected producer, remixer and audio engineer, ‘Steel’ has established himself as a go-to collaborator sought by the likes of Wyclef Jean, Marley Waters, Kat DeLuna, Lil Jon and many others. As a duo, GATTÜSO was born of a burning desire to make dynamic music that inspires listeners to get up and dance.
Their new song “Who We Are” is out today and is a brilliant blend of pop and dance sounds, fusing deep house and horns with featured vocalist Myah’s soft vocals.
We’ve listened to your new single, “Who We Are” ft Myah. It’s a great song! How did the three of you get together?
GATTÜSO: Thank you for the kind words! We had the music for the track done and we wanted to find a singer that captured the feeling and meaning behind the song. After searching for a little while we came across Myah. What we heard on Spotify was different than what we saw on YouTube of her. We felt that she was a versatile singer with a definite spark to her character and we’re very happy with the results.
What’s your backstory?
GATTÜSO: GATTÜSO is comprised of me, MARKUS GATTÜSO (my real name is Reem Taoz), and I’m an Israeli DJ/producer. My production partner is American DJ/producer Terrence “Steel’ Oliver. I grew up listening to EDM in my family’s casinos in Peru and I always knew I wanted to be an artist. I spent endless hours in the clubs studying the sounds that moved people and all the world-famous DJs who came through our clubs. Terrence has over 15 years of experience in the dance music scene and he has worked with artists like Marley Waters, Kat Deluna, and Lil Jon. The group has only been in existence for about eight months now. We actually met randomly at a recording studio and after chatting for a bit about music, we realized how similar our tastes were and decided to start to work on some things together. Shortly after, we realized how great the dynamic was between us and we started moving full steam ahead. There you have the origin of GATTÜSO.
We hear through industry sources that some really big American FM radio stations are excited about your new single. How exciting! Can we expect to hear “Who We Are” on the radio this summer?
GATTÜSO: Definitely, yes! When we made “Who We Are,” we made a couple of different versions (club, radio, Spotify, etc). But radio was our main focus with this song for sure.
“Who We Are” definitely has a very “pop” sound to it, much more so than a festival or club tune. Do you consider yourself to be an EDM producer? Or more of a “pop” music producer?
GATTÜSO: Yes it definitely has a very pop vibe to it. But, I’d say we consider ourselves music producers. We create a lot of different sounds. For instance, our next single is going to be more of a future-house, EDM vibe.
Where can people see you DJ’ing? What DJ gigs (i.e. festivals, nightclubs, etc. have you played in the past? Do you have any club residencies?
GATTÜSO: We don’t have any residences at the moment but we are currently in negotiations.
What is it about GATTÜSO as an artist that makes you special, do you think?
GATTÜSO: What makes GATTÜSO special is that we try to make songs that connect with people. Whether it’s the lyrics that take someone to a familiar place or the music that sets a feeling of euphoria, we try to keep that same quality and energy in every song.

Listen To Jauz's New Single With Kiiara Before It Comes Out Tomorrow
Premiered by Complex today, fans can now listen to Jauz’s new song with Kiiara, “Diamonds,” before it officially drops tonight on streaming services.
Jauz said that this song was “probably one of the most stand-out records from the album, in my opinion, just because of how ‘out there’ for me it is,” and we can definitely tell how that plays out. The song is a blend of mellow and deep house roots, giving attention equally to both. Kiiara’s voice is a focal point of the track, crooning atop the melody.
Elements of hip hop also make their way into the mix, giving this one a heavily layered feeling.
When considering all of the tracks that he has already released for this album, this is easily one of our most-anticipated projects of 2018. He has already released collaborations with Example, DJ Snake, Snails, and LAZER LAZER LAZER, and now he adds Kiiara to the mix.
We wonder if there are any solo Jauz tracks on the album (there must be), but we’re enjoying the collabs for now. Check out “Diamonds” with Kiiara below.
Jauz x Kiiara – Diamonds
Jauz, Yookie & Josh Pan Just Released The Most Surprising Collab This Year
When Jauz revealed Twitter that he was teaming up with YOOKiE and Josh Pan for a pre-album treat, it’s safe to say that a lot people probably pictured dubstep. Well, sorry to disappoint, but this is anything but.
“Dinner Chat” is one the most unexpected singles we’ve heard from a group artists in a while, probably since that wonky YehMe2 and A-Trak . Regardless, “Dinner Chat” starts f with some subtle tribal percussion and vocal loops moving into old school breaks in the build before once again defying expectations at the drop. What we get is somewhere deep house and techno, with minimal synths and a pounding rhythm, accompanied by more vocal loops.
To say this collaboration was unexpected would probably be the biggest understatement 2018 so far. Check out “Dinner Chat” below.
Your EDM Premiere: Husky Feat Nat Conway – Can't Shake It Off
Sydney-based producer Husky might just have another hit on his hands. His newest single “Can’t Shake It Off” sees him team up with the soulful X-Factor alumni Nat Conway for a sultry summery deep house hit which has plenty mainstream appeal to stand on.
The intro melody is a catchy one which should have you bobbing your head from start to finish but the song really takes f when Conway kicks f her first verse. From there, it’s the perfect amount deep house vibes which will help us usher in spring!
Check out the record in four different variants below!
Sam Feldt – Leave Me Alone (ft. George Shelley) – Truth x Lies Remix
The homies from Harlem do it again! Less than a week after I called them out, in a good way that is, for their infectiously catchy new remix “Reckless” Truth x Lies bring the heat again.
This time, they’ve been given a chance on Sam Feldt’s After The Sunset remix album and they’ve certainly grabbed it with both hands. Their funky disco-house remix “Leave Me Alone” is the perfect tune to jam out with at the pre-game.
Check it out below!
One of Monstercat's Best Unleashes Debut 2018 Single On Oliver Heldens' Label
I remember when Your EDM would cover Rootkit as a Monstercat artist as far back as 2014, and now look at him, putting out a new record on Heldeep with lots more in the chamber for 2018. If we were parents, we’d be so proud.
Rootkit just dropped his new song “No Games” on Heldeep’s DJ Tools EP – Part 7, and you’d best believe we have this banger on repeat. The melody and rhythm are entirely unique and unmistakable – when you hear that note come in at the club, you know it’s about to go down. And not to mention you’ll be singing “I ain’t got time for no games” randomly throughout your day.
Check out the whole EP and listen to “No Games” below.
Oliver Heldens Drops New HI-LO Collab with Dada Life
2018 started f on a strong note with Oliver Heldens between his alias HI-LO and Swedish fun guys Dada Life called “Love Vibrations.” Only a 30 second teaser was given, but it was already apparent that the two artists were going to keep the underground alive in their mix.
Now that the track is out in full, that is reinforced ten fold. You won’t hear any Heldens’ typical synth progressions (especially since this is a HI-LO track) nor will you hear Dada Life’s vibrant, bigger than life kicks and chords. Instead, what you get is a wickedly catchy bassline and hook that should have no trouble embedding themselves in your head for days.
Check out “Love Vibrations” below.
Cazztek – If You Really Wanna (feat. Kiyoshi)
I can never resist a good house tune no matter what and Tchami’s label Confession is one my guilty house music pleasures. He’s released plenty my favourite house cuts over the last few years and this new release by Cazztek is certainly up there.
Teaming up with vocalist Kiyoshi, the mysterious Las Vegas-based producer delivers a bouncy new record perfect for the modern day dance floor. Kiyoshi’s brash vocals add another dimension bravado and swagger similar to Cazztek’s previous grime-esque single “Came to Get Funky.” Expect “If You Really Wanna” to make an equal if not bigger splash on the dance-floor this year.
