When you join big names like Flume and Lorde people start to talk, and most importantly, people start to listen. Good music tends to be around for a while before general populations begin to appreciate it, I mean take Vivaldi for instance, God Damn! So my point is, yes Tennis Court is a great remix, but it’s just one page of the encyclopedia that is house and electronic music. Now, to really drill this idea into your head, I’ll review a track made by the single greatest house duo presently in existence: non other than Disclosure. This remix however, was produced by a completely opposite due, made up of two passionate and eager young Spaniard dudes, who just want to make dope sounds available to the world. Steezmonks is the name, Madrid is the city, ‘When A Fire Starts to Burn’ is the single, and the result is mind-blowing!
Steezmonks described their sound as Melodic Deep House, fancy indeed. A combination of summer tunes and tropical vibes blended with deep electro is what I’d call a win-win situation. Disclosure’s original is one of my all-time favorite tunes out there, but this Remix adds a little explosive flavor to a track that otherwise could be a little to monochromatic sounding for a greater population. The vocal sampling is neat and blends well with the melody over a playful opening synth sequence. The piano kicks in and the base drops in solid clean-cut pops. 1, 2, 3 Boom! Synth is back, tropical tunes and all in a pitch perfect combo. Bongo Congo Chimichanga time! Caribbean interlude. But wait what’s that? Is it deep house? Yes it is, Steezmonks keeps Disclosures original deepness and adds Hawaiian floral shirt coconut flavored flourishes all over the place! I FUCKING LOVE IT!
Enjoy people, this is one is a BANG!
