DJ Gesaffelstein dropped off his first album since 2013 last week entitled Hyperion. The French DJ and producer enlisted several high profile artists to feature on his project, but “Blast Off” with Pharrell stands out as a gem on the project. Pharrell is no stranger to collaborating with European electronic artists; his work with Daft Punk is legendary. The storied producer and artist brings that same epic energy to Gesaffelstein’s “Blast Off.”

Pharrell and Gesaffelstein’s collaboration sounds like something from Michael Jackson’s Thriller album. The 80’s electronic sound is mixed with a disco-pop vibe that could work well as either dance music or chill music. Pharrell owns the chorus with his spirited croons, so you can expect to have yet another hook performed by the veteran stuck in your head. 

Quotable Lyrics
Saying that you wanna know
What it feels like to let go
Everything that was before
Should you do it in the youth?
Be enlightened, feel the truth
Let the serotonin set you loose
