Son of 8 are back with a new two-part production on their own underground imprint, 8 House Records. ‘Turn Up The Muzik’ takes you on a time-spanning journey through dance music sub-genres and multiple decades-worth of house sounds. Smashing Traxsource and Beatport charts of late, 8 House Records have been relentless with their releases. There’s no wonder the likes of Oliver Heldens, Roger Sanchez, Tough Love and Craig David are all showing big love and support to the label and it’s owners.
‘Part 1’ exploits Son of 8‘s heavy influence of classic house sounds with its driving, funk-fuelled bassline and equally as groovy drum loop. With samples of record-scratching and glowing soulful vocal melodies, there are undeniable flashes of futuristic disco in this eighties to nineties inspired record. On producing the tracks, Col and Paul said:
‘Part 2’ continues the theme of a groove-ridden bassline that gives the track the perfect foundation to build on. Simplistic rhythms and chimes lead into experimental synth add-ons and overtones of a darker techno vibe. Definitely one for the underground clubs and after parties, ‘Part 2’ will raise the roof with its infectious build ups and devastating drops. Son of 8 commented:
“Part 1 is more of a stripped back groover that swings. It’s quite simple and production wise it’s not as clever as Part 2. In part 2 we really over-engineered the sounds a lot more and really went for it on the drops and rises to give the track a more main set feel.”
