Todd Terry serves another jam in the form of ‘Feel The Sun’, which comes with remixes from youngTEE, Mineo, Howson’s Groove and Sona Vabos. In his time, New York City’s Todd Terry has been Grammy nominated and has turned out seminal hits like ‘Keep On Jumpin’, ‘Somethin’ Going On’, ‘I’ll House You’ and has released on well established labels like Get Physical, Cadenza and Toolroom. This new single is made as a celebration of the global return of house music into the public’s conscious.
The original version of ’Feel The Sun’ has a classic feel with its quick licked piano stabs, trademark big kicks and boisterous house drums. The vocal is a nod to house music’s ‘90s heyday and the vocal sample finishes things off in top style.
Southern Fried artist youngTEE then flips it into a rising, UK garage vibe with reversed basslines, coarse claps and all manner of urban flourishes before Mineo, who has released on Hot Creations and is soon to appear on Hypercolour, then strips the thing back to metallic hits and muffled bass blasts. It’s a slinky, percussive groove that rolls on and on. Howson’s Groove fuse many different urban styles to great effect and do so again here with their sketchy, echo drenched, bass leaning refix. Closing out the package is Sona Vabos who layers in plenty of malfunctioning synth blasts and chops up the original vocal into little stabs. It’s out 3 March on Southern Fried Records.
