John B’s Beta Recordings label makes a welcome return with a new single from Terravita. Made up of Chris Barlow, Matt Simmers and Jon Spero, they’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 ‘Drumstep’, a sub genre the Boston boys have been a part of from day one. Pioneers in the field, ‘Drumstep’ 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 “Drowning” 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 ‘‘Lockdown’’ is in set for big things this Autumn. ‘Lockdown’ 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 ‘’Up in the Club’’. Its dark, mystic vibe draws you in before hitting you with a super-heavy drop.
