Welsh duo Trutopia serve up a house jam that's got 'summer' written all over it

With releases on Nervous, MadTech, Get Twisted and Armada Subjekt last year, as well as their Strictly debut earlier in 2019, it would be fair to say that Welsh wizards Trutopia have really found their groove.

This release is a single-track affair with no supporting remixes, so all the pair's energies have gone into making it into a real barnstormer of a tune. It starts with a hi-hat and a kick which are joined by vocal chops and a one note-string line. We're then hit with a simple but highly effective sax riff, which adds depth to the track and really makes it soar – without, crucially, outstaying its welcome, as sax lines on house tracks sometimes can! The vocals, meanwhile, are of the chopped-up, cut 'n' paste variety, which always works for me.

If it's no-nonsense, floor-filling house grooves you're after, make sure to check for this during your next tune-shopping session.
