On June 7th, 2015, The Junkies celebrated their debut EP, “Just Can’t Try“ on Blu Music. The EP features both the dark, heavy-hitting original track, as well as an upbeat, tech-inspired remix courtesy of Denver-based DJ/Producer Jaceo. For well over a decade, the Toronto born duo have been making music that packs the dance floors of clubs around the world with their distinct bass-heavy and groove-infused techno sound. “Just Can’t Try” proves once again that The Junkies remain exceptional and relevant Producers among techno’s giants!
Just Can’t Try (Original Mix) – starting off with a heavy, distorted and low-slung bass line, Just Can’t Try possesses all the signature sounds of a Junkies’ track. The deep, lackadaisical bass is offset with a series of high claps, creating an instantaneously gratifying rhythm. Without any hesitation, we are hit with another low, pummeling bass note that pulls us further into the depths of this addictive track. An eerie piano progression makes its way to the forefront, as the yearning cry of a woman’s voice echoes out “I just can’t try.” Around the 4:20 mark, the track’s layers begin to peel back, leaving us with nothing but the whirlwind of a cry and build-up of white noise. Just as you are about to come to, we’re hit by the punchy bass line once more.
