Something Something, a new face from Germany by way of London, seemed to have sort of sprung onto the scene in 2019 when she won the DJ contest at that year’s Hospitality at the Beach festival in Croatia. Her skills on the decks were proven that day, but according to an interview with UKF back in 2020 just after her debut single “Another Reason” featuring Nicole Thalia on Friction imprint Elevate’s Quadrant vol. 4 compilation EP, her entree into D&B was already in the works by then. Now with singles and a remix under her belt with fellow underrated producing duo Klue on DeVice, Uncommon and Right Good Records, Something Something is making her Euro label debut with her new solo track, the aptly named “Someone,” due out on Korsakov Music this Friday.
While she’s already proved herself to be quite diverse, from the melodic, Elevate beginnings of “Another Reason” to the grinding, tech-and-old school-inspired “All My Life” and “Keep Me From You” to the deep bass of “Know You,” Something Something deigned to beat the style spread on “Someone.” Combining melodic vocals and break synths, vintage UK hardcore rave pianos, that expertly-crafted deep bass synth and some seriously sexy syncopation at the phrase transitions, “Someone” is the full package.
As fans listen to this premiere, we can also see the evolution of style for Something Something. The tracks are composed differently and thus, by “Someone,” despite all its moving parts and divers styles, it doesn’t feel as screwed together as “Another Reason,” and certainly it seems like this budding talent feels freer to put all the sounds she loves from D&B into her work. With “Someone,” the old adage of seeing the artistry rather than the effort certainly rings true here. From her nods to raves past to the very futuristic bass synths that are already her signature, Something Something has a little something for everyone.
