Canadian-Chinese electronic music artist and producer TRSTN, born Tristen Wang, joins forces together with SHUZ to release the skull-shattering bass-anthem ‘Third Eye’ in 2021 via Aspire Higher. TRSTN has garnered an enormous amount of attention over the years, kicking it off with his debut single “Burn”, which was a massive hit. “Burn” is composed of slick and lush sound design and rhythms, and when combined with SHUZ’s more gritty sonic style, you get a collaboration of wonders. For several years, the two young pioneers of the Asian electronic music scene have been teasing their collaboration for a while throughout their shows, and fans have been anticipating the collision of the two artists with different sonic styles for a long time. Now let’s take a deep look into the track that has been sending shockwaves across the EDM scene.
TRSTN may be young, but he isn’t new to the game, as he has racked up plenty of achievements ranging from touring with Snails and Black Tiger Sex Machine in China to working with big pop stars like Curley G and Qian Zheng Hao. Asides from the tremendous success of “Burn”, TRSTN’s production on RAFA’s single “Tell Me” has amassed over 1 million streams just recently. The success of this iconic artistic development and collaboration might overshadow the gem that is “Third Eye”, but it doesn’t mean that you should ignore this diamond in disguise.
“Third Eye” is the perfect sonic architecture made up of TRSTN’s clean, organic yet gratifyingly blood-pumping staple sounds and SHUZ’s dark, twisted and savory atmospheres. My listening experience was a wild ride because I never knew what would come next. ‘Third Eye’ doesn’t follow your typical bass-music structure, yet all the elements and every drop that comes after each heart-wrenching anticipation successfully pushes and pulls my mind. To TRSTN and SHUZ’s hardcore fans, the promise of “Third Eye” goes beyond their wildest dreams. It’s exciting to see these two artists pushing the boundaries of EDM not only from their native lands of Asia but also around the world. The sky is the limit, and these two young artists’ ability to create and innovate is surely limitless.
Tristen never ceases to amaze our ears with each and every song he puts out. ‘Third Eye’ with SHUZ truly is a gem and we certainly expect more big things to come from his project. Be sure to keep an eye on TRSTN’s journey as he will certainly bless us with new and upcoming music.
