I Love intros with a complex percussion pattern that becomes infectious, forcing you to move. A teasing bass loiters before a warm chunky kick drum takes over setting the track firmly on its tech house fuelled course. Cool vocals are scattered throughout and add an urban vibe to the sound. It’s the expertly crafted drums that make this one appealing, perfect fodder for the floors.
Make Love sets out with a real smooth tech groove made up of a meandering bassline and building drum section. Muted kicks are replaced with a superb punchy hit which is accompanied by cool crispy hi hats and rhythmic percussions. The track continues on a deeper groove thanks to that bassline and the vocals. A solid, hypnotic slice of tech that will definitely keep the party rocking.
