Ant Brooks – Whassup

We stick with the tuffer vibes now, with this very solid slab of driving tech-house from Ant Brooks.

The original mix of Whassup features insistent beats, an even more insistent "But you know what? It's whassup" female vocal and nagging, building synths. It'll do the do on younger/more mainstream floors for sure – its crowd-pleasing snare rolls will see to that – but for me it's all about the Danic Remix. Here, the synths are reined in considerably as more rolling beats join forces with a warping b-line to create an altogether more heads-down, chuggy pass. And one, importantly, with no bloody snare rolls.

I hate snare rolls. Heads-down and chuggy is good, though.

Out: This week
