Tchami & Malaa Relive Hot, Nasty Club Nights of Their Youth on 'Summer 99': Listen

Anthony Ghnassia


The French scene in 1999 must have been incredible It was peak-era French touch. It was bangin' house beats, rapid loops, and tons of bootyful basslines. 

Memories are experienced through a veil, and for French producers Tchami and Malaa, that veil hangs heavy with gritty bass. As the friends prepare for their joint headlining No Redemption tour, kicking off in November, they mark the occasion with the collaborative single "Summer 99." It's raw and rowdy, definitely modern in composition with a screeching hook and killer low end, but it does throwback to late-'90s house jams with a scratchy vocal and hip-hop-infused house rhythm. 

It's a jacked-up tune to make you get low. Get caught up in your own memories, or make some new ones, with this tune below, out everywhere today on Tchami's label Confession.
