19-year-old, Australian prodigy Throttle has released new single, ‘Money Maker’featuring ‘Bills’ hit maker LunchMoney Lewis and former JLS star Aston Merrygold, out now via Spinnin’/Positiva.
The club mix was an infectious slice of Throttle’s famous ‘dirty disco‘ that combined a classic James Brown vocal sample with lashings of grooving house. Sassy string arrangements, funky guitars and feel-good pianos all do battle with a phat bassline, while breakbeat sections switch things up from the 4/4 beats. It was hard to see how this young producer could have made the track catchier still, but with the help of Aston Merrygold and LunchMoney Lewis, he’s done just that.
The soulful, powerful vocals of this dynamite duo elevate the track to serious earworm status, a rejigged intro section helps build the energy, and along with its hilariously saucy new video it makes for a seriously potent package. Already receiving support on BBC Radio 1 from Danny Howard, it looks set to be one of the big tracks of late summer.
