The latest track from Glasgow Underground comes from a new collaboration between existing GU talent, Illyus and Barrientos. ‘Do Anything You Wanna’ is a two-track EP from the pair who have previously remixed Grum together (picking up support from Pete Tong’s Essential Selection straight off the bat) and delivered solo EPs for GU, Morris Audio and Seven Music.
Already seeing support from a huge range of DJs including Radio 1’s Pete Tong and Danny Howard, Skream, Huxley, Sasha, Kiki and Amine Edge, the hype for the track is intensifying on a weekly basis and looks set to be a big one for the label. Add in plays and interviews on BBC Radio 1 Xtra and you start to see that this could be a huge track for the duo.
Glasgow Underground: “We're just a little bit proud of this collaboration. We've been working with these two guys for a while now and thought their talents would be a perfect match. After a bit of cajoling, we got the two of them in the studio and boy are we glad we did.
“There is no other way to put this – ‘Do Anything You Wanna’ is an absolute anthem. The vocals are hooky like ‘Shake That’, pianos classy like Ejeca's finest and its beats walk around like they are bigger than Prince. An instant dancefloor bomb that should propel two of Glasgow's hottest new talents on to seriously big things.
“‘The Times We Shared’ is a bit moodier, but equally floor-filling. It oozes vocal style like the best of Diynamic but with some added super-tough Glaswegian beats that take the record into the kind of territory Deep Dish would be in (if they were still making records as good as they did in '94 today).”
It’s out on Beatport on 10 March, everywhere else on 24 March, check it out below.
