The single-track release comes on Sense Traxx, who've just turned five
Off the back of their fifth birthday celebrations, Sense Traxx release a fresh production that demonstrates their sound to perfection. Amsterdam-based Guz has established himself already on the likes of Toolroom, Simma and Nothing Else Matters, while Simun is a hip-shaking house connoisseur with a long history of releases under his belt. Together, they have crafted something special.
The Jam kicks off with a drum-led intro and then swings the beat nicely while adding male vocal samples, one-note string lines, risers and what sound like flute samples, all of which take you to the introduction of the funk bassline and the main body of the track. There are claps and other rhythmic noises, while the main vocal line is in a hip-house style but doesn't dominate the track as such vocals sometimes can. Add some rave-y stabs and what you end up with is a funky nugget that's sure going to move bodies out on the floor.
The production here is spot on and The Jam is sure to sound great on a big club soundsystem where it counts. If you like your house music on a groovy, funky tip then look no further - this release is a guaranteed party-starter.
