#2101 – ALAIA & GALLO – PUSHIN’ ON THE WALLS (INCL. KEVIN MCKAY REMIX)
Glasgow Underground’s latest features two new jams from the creators of our Guilty Pleasure track of the year so far. The Bill Withers penned ”Who Is He (And What Is He To You)” is one of our favourite club songs (the Meshell Ndegeocello / Danny Tenaglia version is also wicked) and Alaia & Gallo’s new version is perfect sunshine dancing material. Fresh from their success with that, the guys have delivered these two club-ready crackers.
“Pushin’ from The Walls” is a proper house groove with a tough jacking bassline, floor-filling vocals and loads of percussive fx and wonky noises. If you like John Tejada’s “Sweat (On The Walls)” then this will be for you. Kevin McKay delivers a deeper take that hints at classic organ-house such as Jaydee, Feel The Drums or The African Dream without actually getting his M1 organ out (as I think we can all agree that’s been DONE!). According to Kevin, he “imagined himself on the Sub Club dancefloor at 1am and thought about the record he’d most like Harri to play next.”
“For Me” is just as DJ-friendly but delivers a more musical experience, its string hooks and hypnotic vocals reminding me of the glorious King Britt Remix of Josh One’s “Contemplation”.
