After a long hiatus, Greek powerhouses Playmen, along with their native fellow Damluke bring the tribal heat on with the big-room anthem “Serra” on Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike‘s newly-established Generation Smash – parent label to famous Smash the House! Playmen’s long catalogue of releases, include collaborations with the one and only Vassy on “I Should Have Said”, but also T-Pain on “Out Of My Head” and Hadley Poole on “Gypsy Heart“, just to name a few.
‘Serra’ on Generation Smash
Hailing straight out of the crystal-clear waters of Athens, Playmen have been steadily rising through the scene for several years, taking their captivating sets to Tomorrowland, Primer Music Festival and more, and now the duo are now joined by Damluke, a fellow Greek man and fresh talent at only 24 years old, hailing from Crete, for Smash the House Generation Smash’s next release; ‘Serra’.
‘Serra’ takes on the prototype of stylistic, bombastic big-room and flips it on its head. Tribal-leaning tones and pounding beats gyrate to add oomph from the get-go before regal vocals merge with spacious yet immersive drum beats, as if ready for battle. Flitters of glockenspiel add another dimension before the rising synths and intergalactic bleeps wind it up to its climax.
Worthy of peak-time festival plays and already drawing in support from label heads Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, ‘Serra’’s cultural elevation and unforgiving tempo is set to dominate this Summer and welcomes in Playmen and Damluke as two of the freshest names to come out of the Generation Smash camp this summer.
