Like many Zulu Records releases, ‘Y I Left U’ breaks house music boundaries. A rough guide to genre-hopping, it exploits both Plastik Funk’s and My Digital Enemy’s impressive digital capabilities, leaving us with a track that flexes its muscle as much on the dance floor as it does behind the scenes in the production studio.
Out now on the ever-impressive Zulu Records, who are known for releasing some of the most danceable beats in the business – you can be sure that they’ve delivered yet again. The instantly rocking groove infects the track with garage vibes from the off with an unusual juxtaposition which sees a compelling build up to inevitable Ibiza party vibes within the same minute. Hooky melodies from the very beginning are backed up with atmospheric vocals and the addictive rumble of a seriously good bass line. There’s a clear reason why Danny Hoard premiered this on BBC Radio 1, why My Digital Enemy, Sam Divine, Thomas Gold, Lucas & Steve and more are all playing it, and why Marc Vedo has labelled it “bouncy as funk” – you’ll just need to grab a copy to find out for yourself.
My Digital Enemy have consistently associated themselves with cutting edge house music over the last few years; they’ve established themselves as a serious talent on the scene having notched up a number of chart hits and tracks linked to Snoop Dogg, Beyonce and Groove Armada to name a few, it’s easy to see how their library of influences has had a huge impact on this latest collaboration.
It’s easy to see how an intense touring schedule led Plastik Funk to explore a whole new world of hip-house music. They’ve developed a unique sound from playing at places like Tomorrowland, Pacha NYC and a full tour of Asia in one record-breaking season – joining forces with fellow house veterans My Digital Enemy could only ever have one outcome.
Both artistes hit the ground running with an exceptional start to 2016. This experimental track will definitely be spun on decks across the world – get ready to bounce to it on a dance floor near you.
