Based in Los Angeles, California is the songwriting/production team of Schmarx & Savvy. Not only is this duo expert at playing on words, but one of their biggest strengths is their versatility and ability to write across all genres. They have penned music with many artists such as 3LAU, Jordin Sparks, Zeds Dead, Shawn Hook, Goldn, Carly Paige, and Marlhy. Schmarx & Savvy blends a diverse range of styles, pulling flavors from pop, edm, and hip hop to establish their own sound.
“Somebody Real” is a tech house song layered with the authenticity that Schmarx & Savvy bring to the table. The track sheds light on the impossible task of finding “Somebody Real” in a huge city like Los Angeles. Infectious background vocals with a really energetic backing track make this record a go-to in our recent features. Schmarx & Savvy add a pounding beat and bass rumble to carry the track into the breakdown, and allows “Somebody Real” to rebuild the story with the kind of brooding tension that will delight peak time dancefloors. It features a highly infectious groove and expertly mixed rollers, so you can feel every little nuance if played loud enough. It's high-octane stuff, with boundless percussive energy and relentless bass movement. Schmarx & Savvy’s tech house sound is melodic, bouncy and undeniably fun. “Somebody Real” is a diverse club banger that will fire up the party without fail.
