SecondCity "What You Need"
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
UK house outfit SecondCity has been trickling out its own '90s throwbacks online for a short while now, and saw its first official release—The Story EP—via Huxley's Saints & Sonnets imprint back in June. With the exclusive "What You Need," the production team propels familiar vocal sampling, massive filter sweeps, and anticipated beat sequences into an ageless, welcoming space. Using a hospitable tone palette of comforting bass, figure-hugging kicks, and crisp cymbals, SecondCity's cut plays out like a warm blanket of dancefloor nostalgia.
