Vini Vici Joins Gabry Ponte For Follow-Up Collaboration ‘Damage’

The world received a collaboration of colossal proportions — for the second time, that is.

Looking for banging festival music, anyone? Then this one might be for you. ‘Damage‘ is not only the name of the newest conjoint work between Psytrance maestros Vini Vici and legendary musician Gabry Ponte: it’s also what their latest track will do on the dancefloor. A single that promises to turn clubs and festivals on their heads with clever groove and catchy boominess, ‘Damage’ sees the light of day via Smash The House.

Having already worked together for ‘Lo Nevosh‘, the three guys are no strangers to joining forces. Fusing their styles and sounds in a unique manner, ‘Damage’ acts as a clear statement towards the undeniable musical prowess that each artist possesses, while also amplifying their versatile natures and the easiness of trying out new formulas and genres.

Needless to say, the acts colliding for ‘Damage’ are no short of gigantic, with a massive career already solidified. On one hand, the Israeli duo comprised of Matan Kadosh and Aviram Saharai, has brought infectious beats time and time again with songs like their remix of ‘Free Tibet‘, ‘Great Spirit‘ alongside Armin van Buuren, and recently, ‘The Race‘ together with Timmy Trumpet and Sub Zero Project. On the other hand, the Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum producer Gabry Ponte has been around for literal decades, with his largest recognition being when part of the iconic group Eiffel 65. As a solo act, Ponte has come together with artists of the calibre of Timmy Trumpet, R3HAB and Aloe Blacc, for a handful of tracks.


Making clever use of the popular “back once again for the renegade master sample from the 1995 House track by Wildchild, ‘Renegade Master‘, Vini Vici’s and Gabry Ponte’s track rapidly evolves to take on a hard-hitting Techno vibe, one that teases a somewhat Reverse Bass feel. Adding subtle textures and machine-programmed hats, the drop abruptly cuts all percussion to leave you hanging just with the kick and bass.

Once the break arrives, the tension continues, as listeners dive into a breakbeat percussion atmosphere just before approaching the next drop. We surely do envision this track being accompanied by CO2 cannons and fire shows. It’s a song that shows off best at a crowded festival. Don’t take my word for it: go see the guys live near your city and see for yourself.
