PREMIERE : Martin Hayes – Turn You On [Razor-N-Tape]


Brooklyn’s Razor-N-Tape releases more music than humanly possible. How they continue to add quality releases to their ever expanding catalogue is an A&R feat for the ages. Credit must be given where it’s due, and the dream team of Aaron Dae and JKriv deserve applause for the efforts they make to bring quality dance music to our ears. For their thirty-third release, the boys have tapped Mating Ritual Recordings chief, Martin Hayes (soundcloud), for some disco house tasties. Leaning a bit more toward up-tempo material than his previous RNT EP, Martin delivers four cuts primed for the many seasons of a changing dancefloor.

Kicking off the record’s flip side is “Turn You On,” a brass tinged heater with a walking bass line so infectious it’ll have you hands up, eyes closed in the middle of the dance-floor. This one burns hot, and the immediacy of the song’s progression makes it feel like it’s hit it’s peak before ever getting close to it. Lot’s of what we come to expect from peak hour disco house is included here. Funky bass, shimmering strings, and wait is that a giant Tuba hit? Seriously, I need to know because it’s awesome. And just like that, when you think you’ve heard it all, a sexy vocal brings your walls crashing down. You’re no longer human. You’re transcending. But don’t panic, “It’s gonna be love” so there’s no need to worry. Anyone listening to this track is having the same reaction.

The Martin Hayes Edits Pt. 2 is dropping on February 2nd, so get the vinyl while it’s available here.
