With the blessing of Freak Nasty himself, prolific house producer Dark Heart takes the classic 1996 cut “Da’ Dip” and flips it into a sweltering new single called “Get Down Low.” Featuring a dynamic rap vocal from Mia Marvelous that does the Miami-bass original justice, the production is downright propulsive as gritty bass lines are woven through crisp percussive snaps.
Dark Heart explains, “I grew up listening to the original Freak Nasty version of ‘Da’ Dip’, and as I started making music, I always knew I had to flip this one. Everything aligned sonically on the production and then I brought Mia in to re-vocal and make it from a female perspective too, which felt like a nice point of difference to the original.”
Dark Heart is a dynamic talent who’s lived multiple lives in the entertainment industry. Starting out as a concert booker in college where he secured performances from the likes of Wiz Khalifa, he subsequently felt a calling as a talent agent for the big screen and made the jump from Indiana to LA. He rose up the ranks of the industry’s premier talent agency in WME and worked with a range of quintessential actors and directors, but he eventually felt another calling: music. Leaving the comfort of his heavy-hitting job behind, he took a fearless risk to follow his passion for production and navigated life as a newcomer in a wholly new industry.
At moments he thought he made the wrong decision, but in recent years, it’s crystal clear that his risk has paid off. Dark Heart’s impressive catalog (including official remixes for Bazzi, Seeb, GASHI & DJ Snake alongside collaborations with Jonas Blue) has amassed over 100 million streams to date with original releases through Spinnin’ Records, Solotoko, Tomorrowland Music, Selected., Musical Freedom, Thrive, Electronic Nature, Smash The House, Dharma, NCS, Circus Records, and Proximity. He’s been supported in live sets and radio shows all over the world by Tiësto, The Chainsmokers, Marshmello, SIDEPIECE, Sonny Fodera, and Joel Corry, rapidly evolving into a household name in dance music and beyond.
