#2078 – SPENCER K – DYNAMITE EP FEAT. DENNIS CRUZ
I have a cheeky we French number for you today. Produced by Lyon’s rising tech-house star, Spencer K. I was first introduced to Spencer by Metodi Hristov who collaborated with him on “Basic Tricks”, their Hot Since 82/Danny Daze/Robert Dietz supported bomb from late 2014.
Since then he has given us “Vodka Way”. Was it an ode to the standard DJ rider most clubs opt for? Who knows… What I can say for sure is that it featured on GU’s (Top 10 tech house) Ibiza album and was supported by the likes of Catz’n’Dogz, Wade, The Mekanism & Thermalbear.
For his debut EP on GU he delivers 2 brand new solo tracks and a superb collaboration with Saved/Suruba/Kinetika artist Dennis Cruz.
“Impacto” (with Cruz) kicks off the EP. Heavy brass stabs and oddball vocal effects make a unique topline while some clever percussion and bouncing bottom end deliver a killer club groove that – to me – sounds as fresh and dance-floor ready as Metodi’s “Step Outside” did two summers ago.
“Dynamite” takes things up a notch with looping vocals and air-punching synths. “Hard Struggle” maintains the energy levels with rolling synths, rapid-fire snares and a cool vocal and for those that missed it first time around, “Vodka Way” is here for you too.
