Atmospheric-house producer ZUSO releases his first single of 2023 ‘Higher.’

Australian producer Gabriel Cuenca (ZUSO) has shared his first single of 2023. The track is highlighted by intricate soundscapes and dreamy atmospheres designed to put you in a good mood.

Here’s ZUSO discussing the creation of the track:

“The idea for ‘Higher’ came from me stumbling across this sample/template online. It was a fast-paced drum and bass styled beat with these somewhat dreamy pads and chords as the melodies. It’s the first time for me experimenting with a fast tempo drum & bass styled track, but I felt it fit my vibe really well and thought it was really cool. As a lot of the stuff I work on is focused around progressive house/melodic beats, I thought it would be interesting to change it up and still keep that dreamy atmospheric type of vibe, just with a faster beat.

He continues:

“So that’s what happened. I then applied some of my own sounds and presets, added some dreamy melodies and it all just flowed really nicely. I also thought it was cool with the two breakdown sections where I actually sampled a cabin crew speech, preparing the passengers for take-off which kind of builds up the anticipation to the drop and is also something very unique and different. This was then complemented by a little vocal sample saying ‘Take Me Higher’ which conveniently was in key and worked really well, that’s where the name and concept of ‘Higher’ came from.”

‘Higher’ is available everywhere now.
