The ABODE resident comes up with the goods for the in-house record label

GW Harrison is a name that's firmly in the ascendant right now, and here he returns to his resident label to release this nugget of tech-house goodness. It comes complete with an Eli Brown Remix, and both mixes rock.

I Make You Go successfully fuses modern tech-house production values with old school rave-style synths, and the pairing works to a tee. First up is the Original Mix, which begins with a kick, hi-hat, snare and crashing cymbals, then adds female vocal chops, the aforementioned old school synth sound and a riff that has definite leanings to the past and an early, jacking feel. There are all of the usual tech-house drum fills and odd bits of percussion thrown in for good measure and the track really works out on the dancefloor. The remix keeps it strictly old school as well, with a percussive intro that builds in layers and has the telltale icy hi-hats and claps in place, along with the female vocal chops. Then the synth riff kicks in and oh boy is it a stone cold groover that increases the intensity of the track to the max. This one truly rocks the funky beat!

They're both great tracks, but for me the remix is the one - it has an intensity to it that really makes you want to get up to get down, and as it's all about the groove it wins for me by a long chalk.
