Today’s featured music is “No Guest Lift” from Fraze featuring Alika Manuel. Fraze, originally from Bellevue is currently based out of Tacoma. “No Guest List” is an upbeat, dance pop ode to going out to the club in Seattle with friends, VIP style – no guestlist. We love the catchy synth-work, along with the lyrics by Alika Manuel of Bellevue.

I’m super excited to share this new original with you guys! My remixes have been played by DJs from Seattle to Dubai, Vegas to Paris, and Australia to Miami but it is super exciting to see people supporting my original content!

No Guest List means a lot to me. First, it was a great chance to collaborate with another talented local artist. My goal for the track was to create a fusion of EDM and hip hop in a way that reflected how I see the energy in the Seattle music scene. I think a lot of people in the Seattle area want the beat and energy that goes into dance music but also the flow and passion that can go into a hip hop track. -Fraze

We asked Fraze a few questions and here is what he had to share with EmeraldCityEDM:

How did you link up with the lyricist? His voice is great, is he a local?

I met Alika, who is also from Seattle, at Trinity Nightclub! He was there supporting Catch24, who I was DJing with that night, and she played some of his tracks. I was super impressed so I made a point to meet him and work with him!

I see you do a lot of hip-hop, is EDM new for you?

I have seen a lot of success in “club-ready” remixes of top 40 and hip hop tracks, but I always try incorporate electronic influences in my music. I tend to produce a variety of styles, but a decent amount of my music at the moment are trap/twerk remixes.

Any more music to be released this year?

Yes! I can’t speak too much about my upcoming releases but I will have some more official/original releases by the end of the year. Also, I am always posting new remixes on my Soundcloud and you can expect to see a lot more from Fraze in the near future!

Where can we catch you playing in the Seattle area next?

You can find me at various spots around Seattle every weekend, including Baltic Room, Trinity Nightclub, Q Nightclub, and Lucky Strike in Bellevue.

What does your DJ name Fraze mean?

I have been a musician for most of my life, and a composer for a long time. When I started composing I wrote sheet music. Fraze is similar to a “phrase” of music that you might write down on sheet music.
