His Solotoko debut is a masterclass in moving bodies on dancefloors
Sonny Fodera welcomes Southampton-born DJ/producer Biscits to his flourishing Solotoko imprint with his latest release Do It Like This, which features two in-your-face house cuts that don't disappoint.
First we have the title track, which has an old-school/nu-school feel with a percussive intro, snare rolls and amped-up sampled female vocals that are cut 'n' pasted to cause maximum dancefloor devastation. They are brash and loud in the mix, and along with some ass-shaking bass tones and cowbells it all adds up to a very floor-friendly track: this is music to dance to in wild abandon.
Track two, Socialize, is more of the same but with even more attitude than the first, if that's possible. It also has that great cut 'n' paste feel, which makes it sound more dramatic and less polished. It starts with a simple drum loop and builds with diva-esque soulful vocal wails, then breaks down before the verse kicks in and the full vocal comes in strong. The backing is quite sparse so the vocal really sounds prominent, with just a jaunty bassline and a few retro claps also present in this “less is more” production.
Miss this one at your peril!
