Taken from the forthcoming Partyfine labels 2nd compilation is a new track, titled ‘What you wanna do’, from Paris DJ/Producer Jean Tonique. Making his mark remixing the likes of Lana Del Rey and Outkast, he’s been a regular in the Hype Machine top ten with his classic slices of funky house.
What You Wanna Do features rising Vancouver trio Dirty Radio, who provide these soul-filled lyrical lines, over Tonique’s rich, funky lines. Right from the off, there’s these Prince like vibes before it breaks down into this classic house, Inner City style bassline, soaked in synths and driven on by these sprawling beats, that manage to ebb and flow throughout, and score big on sunny, funky, singalong house music.
If this isn’t the sound of the summer, then there’s something wrong.
