John Bâ€™s Beta Recordings label makes a welcome return with a new single from Terravita. Made up of Chris Barlow, Matt Simmers and Jon Spero, theyâ€™re putting their electro powerhouse alterego Hot Pink Delorean to the side for just a second for their debut release on Beta, “Lockdown” and “Up in the Club”.
The single is best described as â€˜Drumstepâ€™, a sub genre the Boston boys have been a part of from day one. Pioneers in the field, â€˜Drumstepâ€™ is proving to be one of the most popular rising genres to date.
Terravita were first recognised in 2006 by Maldini & Vegas (Bad Company) with 4 tracks featued on the Bad Taste 2 LP. Following 4 singles on Technique Recordings, including “Adult Robot Kung Fu”, Terravita have released music with Subsonik Sound as well as a remix of AK1200’s rave anthem “Drowningâ€ that hit #4 on the Beatport Charts.
With huge support already from heavy hitters like Rusko, Dieselboy, John B and Evol Intent we can be certain that the massive single â€˜â€˜Lockdownâ€™â€™ is in set for big things this Autumn. â€˜Lockdownâ€™ kicks off by sending a shiver down your spine with its thrilling piano intro, building vehemence before dropping into a snarling, furious bassline. Following the pattern of intense intros that leave you shaking in your raving boots is â€˜â€™Up in the Clubâ€™â€™. Its dark, mystic vibe draws you in before hitting you with a super-heavy drop.
