The latest dancefloor-ready offering from Steve Aoki-led imprint Dim Mak is a collaboration between international festival darling MAKJ and up-and-coming electronic artist Max Styler. Together, the two artist’s production comes together to showcase the soulful vocals of Elayna Boynton. “Knock Me Down” isn’t your typical trap banger, trading bottle service and twerking booties for inspirational messages of hope and resilience. Boynton’s glistening vocals are smooth as cashmere, effortlessly glistening atop a glitched out trap beat. The result is a satisfying juxtaposition of the ethereal and the energetic.
