Hozho Brings His Melodark Magic on ‘Ego (É Tudo ou Nada)’

For his latest single, Hozho has teamed up with long-time collaborator, Black Hertz and Mandragora.

Having established a reputation as one of electronic music’s most unique artists through his ‘Melodark’ style of music, internationally renowned Portuguese DJ and producer, Hozho has opened his 2024 release tally in style, with his brand new single ‘Ego (É Tudo ou Nada).’

Teaming up with long-time collaborator Black Hertz and fellow Brazilian Mandragora, the three artists have come together to unleash an extraordinary slice of underground dance music that captivates from the off. Unequivocal in their collective commitment to creativity, Hozho, Black Hertz and Mandragora’s diverse musicality is evident from the outset, as they combine to deliver a high-octane, peak time cut that spans a plethora of influences, ranging from melodic techno, psytrance, minimal and everything in between.

Speaking about the collaboration, Hozho commented:
“‘Ego’ from my Psyche EP with Black Hertz has been reinterpreted by Mandragora in the style that defines and characterizes him. What was supposed to be just a remix ended up becoming a kind of collaboration-come-mashup, completely changing the vibe of the original song but keeping the sonic elements that most characterize “Ego”, including the vocals. As they say in Portuguese — É Tudo ou Nada (It’s all or nothing).”

Mandragora spoke about how they brought the multi-cultural experience together on the single:
“When Hozho sent me the files I didn’t know what to do with them. My plan was to make a simple minimal beat, so I started working in my studio in France before travelling to Brazil. Once in Brazil, I had the opportunity of finishing the writing, recording, production and mixing at the legendary Alien Records studio in Curitiba – this allowed us to experiment with a more organic sound that helped us create a luxurious atmosphere, mixing the European winter with the Brazilian sun.

Out now,‘Ego (É Tudo Ou Nada)’ presents as an immaculately refined, genre-defying cut that’s founded on crisp, hard-hitting percussion, ethereal melodies and acid-laced synth work, keeping the listener guessing at every turn.

Hozho, Mandragora & Black Hertz – ‘Ego (É Tudo Ou Nada)’ is out now.
