Glasgow based House & Techno producing duo Illyus & Barrientos, deliver us with what could be the anthem of Summer 2018!
'So Serious' kicks off with a chunky percussion loop and what sounds like a subtle choppy guitar sound, then develops nicely - via the addition of a shaken tambourine, bass tones and a swung hi-hat pattern - into a chunky, funky house track with female vocals cut up and liberally scattered into the mix. As the main female vocal comes in (a sample from none other than Janet Jackson), there's a riser and a solid lead line that drags you through the aural organised chaos nicely; there are also whoops and snare rolls that all add to the tension.
The whole track is designed to rock a nightclub or festival, and sounds great at loud volumes: by the time you hit the second breakdown, the crowd should be rocking with wild abandon! If you're looking for a proper no-holds-barred party tune, this infectious, fun release is a strong contender.
We look forward to hearing it a lot across the airwaves on Select Radio!
