High Powered Boys "Udon"
The Parisian party-starters of High Powered Boys just unleashed their latest tune offering to the gods of high-quality club music, the four-track Udon / Work EP. The duo's two original productions are paired with remixes from Julio Bashmore and Tom Trago to flesh out the release, all of which you can preview here. And courtesy of the Sound Pellegrino label, we're giving you a free download of one of those a-sides, the hyperactive, sax-infused "Udon." Now, we're sure everyone is aware of how easily a bleating brass instrument can turn tracks horribly wrong, but producers Bobmo and Surkin made this sax work well for them by keeping it simple and smooth. After the staccato beats, intoxicating sound effects, hyped-up vocal samples, and deep synth pads of "Udon" work out some next-level house grooves, a sultry sax hook descends upon your ears, and offers a short reprieve from the rhythmic assault before High Powered Boys launch the track straight back into the stratosphere. You can sample more of that magic in the duo's awesome Rippin' Off Canvas Mix, below.
