Pioneering Saudi DJ Cosmicat is back in the studio after a hectic tour over the past couple of months, during which she made her Tomorrowland debut - a feat that helped put the Arab world at the coveted Belgian festival. Following up on her success, the young DJ and producer recently released a mesmerizing house tune, ‘Set Me Free’, on Saudi label MDLBEAST Records.
Cosmicat is a self-taught musician who grew up in Saudi Arabia, spending her previous life as a dentist before dedicating herself to music full-time. Cosmicat was one of the first few women to shine within the burgeoning Saudi music scene, paving the way for many Saudi female musicians to follow their passion.
‘Set Me Free’ boasts a house rhythm with melodic elements that draw inspiration from deep house and downtempo. The track kicks off instantly with the drums and an elongated nasaly lead, and a mellow Reese bass to wrap it all together. Making use of many hissing FX and sci-fi sounds, Cosmicat properly embraces the ‘cosmic’ in her name. The second half of the track introduces an additive dose of intensity with an extra layer of pads and leads that creates tension as the track comes to an end.
