Ireland’s own Kristian Nairn is back on everybody’s ears with new tune entitled “Evolve”, released on Tritonal’s Enhanced Recordings.
You have to be living under a rock to not know who Kristian Nairn is. The Lisburn native has been experiencing a steady rise in popularity in the dance music world, as his sound gets increasingly better and better. Most people know him for his starring role on Game of Thrones as Hodor, but Kristian hasn’t been holding the door much in his DJing career, he has actually blown the door to smithereens and burst through it.
First picking up steam after his “Rave of Thrones” tour, the 2,13m giant kept on going and reaching heights as big as his size: since performing at Tomorrowland, to opening for Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s Garden of Madness event, 2018 was a very good year for Kristian.
But it wasn’t enough. After releasing minor singles with various degrees of success, Kristian cranked it up a notch in 2019 and started out releasing a collab with Alex Graham on Zerothree entitled “Life is Too Short”, following up that anthem with “Galaxia” on Ferry Corsten’s Flashover Recordings. After that came “Zephyr”, a dark/house-y track, which brings us to today’s “Evolve” on Enhanced Recordings.
And boy has he been evolving. Keeping true to his by now signature sound, “Evolve” starts out with a dark synth and a somewhat industrial vibe, which quickly transitions to Kristian’s more upbeat sound we’re used to by now. A simple yet catchy melody, with epic synths and feel-good percussion accompanies and carries through the rest of the track, ensuring a 3:29min blessing to your ears.
