Straight up: this is some damn good house right here. (audio)


The best house tracks are usually the ones that are just as an enjoyable to listen to at home as they are at a club. This new strikes the perfect balance, with enough shifts in melody and energy to keep it interesting to listen to, but also having just the right energy to keep the dance floor excited. It also does a fantastic job of riding the line between disco and house, with the drums having an almost live warmth to them, but also having enough bump and power to them to be the driving force of the song. All in all, I don’t know what else to say about this track other than as soon as I can, I’m adding this to my collection as this is seriously one of best house tracks I’ve heard in awhile.

Marquis Hawkes’s “The Basement Is Burning” will be out on AUS Music soon. Keep checking their Bandcamp page here for more info.
