Teased across the festival circuit over the past seven months before today's release via HARD Recs., the track comes highly anticipated from house fans near and far. “You guys ready for the new Waxtroda?” Wax Motif had teased, coining the pair's name on social media on Wednesday.
"La Candela Viva" opens with a powerful vocal sample from Colombian music icon Totó La Momposina layered over cumbia-style drums, before launching into a thumping tech house beat. Rhythmic vocal chops, sultry guitar licks and a pumping bassline all come together for a mischievous and danceable anthem.
