After celebrating their 5th year in the game with a label party, Sense Traxx are back to business with a fresh production that demonstrates the crux of their sound in clinical fashion. Continuing to turn heads on their relentless mission to release some of the freshest techno-infused house music around, there is simply no denying the insistency of the imprint, which continues to knock on the doors of tech-house enthusiasts worldwide. Now firmly cementing their place as one of the most reliable sources for groove-infested house sounds, Sense Traxx has carved out its own niche in the dance music world, and it’s easy to hear why.
Establishing himself on labels such as Toolroom, Simma, Nothing Else Matters and now Sense Traxx, Amsterdam-based Guz has been carefully crafting body-grooving rhythms for the last year, and is now ready to unleash them on the world. He joins forces with Simun, a connoisseur of hip-shaking house music, with a hefty history of releases and high-profile gigs under his belt – this record was only ever going to have one outcome. Taking up remixing responsibilities is label-owner Simon Shaw, who has cranked the energy levels up even further with his highly addictive melody-led fist-pumper of a rework.
Delving into tech-house, disco and everything in between, “The Jam” has it all. Overflowing with energy from start to finish with a bassline that rolls for days on end, not to mention the delicate melody hook that projects undeniable danceability throughout. Flawless production is demonstrated through the crisp hi-hats, solid backbeat and subtle percussive stabs, that also glue the overall tone of the record together. You’ll have trouble keeping still to this one, a dead-cert to liven things up on any dance floor.
“When I heard the record I instantly loved the groove. Leaning more towards an upfront house vibe and a catchy vocal I can imagine this doing well in the clubs and sounding great on the radio.” – Simon Birkumshaw (Sense Traxx)
There’s a reason Sense Traxx are making noise above the rest, and after recently launching a sister imprint, it’s going to get a whole lot louder. This is “The Jam” to end 2017 with, get down.
