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.
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.
