Berlin-based producer Liam Mour has released his latest single, 'Pure Puma'.
The track explores elements of garage and jungle whilst incorporating some tinges of breaks sounds too, for an upbeat, immersive and intriguing four-minute cut.
Widely associated with a cinematic, vastly analogue sound, Mour aligns himself with that for his latest single, pitching himself comfortably in the realms of ambient sounds and electronica.

His inspiration between the track stems from an unexpected encounter with a particularly large feline - and, once you learn the context, the urgency felt within the record seems fitting.
“I was on a road trip to Joshua Tree National Park in California recently when a puma suddenly crossed the road in front of our car and we nearly hit it," explains Mour. "This song captures that exact moment and instantly came to my mind."
The energetic track, blending a scattering of drums alongside lower rolling frequencies, follows on from three previous EP releases, namely the successful 2020 release 'Love'. It carves out a new style of dance energy from the producer and shifts into a different direction, providing a festival-ready track for the summer.

It's been a successful couple of years for Mour. Most recently, his creative live performances and enigmatic shows resulted in a sold-out home performance at Berlin's Funkhaus.
