"Take a Ride" - Right from the get-go this track has the ability to connect with the crowd.. "Let me take you on a trip, let me take you on a ride". Progressive old school flow that laces a great beat mix in and out for just about any house DJ. The flip side is that this track has a true nuskool sound to it. Get ready to go there!!
"Turn Dat Shit Up" - Touch Dirty rounds up this EP with a mechanical grinder of a track, emboldened by the bass and boundless beyond the melody. The rhythm pushes and pulls like rubber bands, invoking a heavy head bob and a footloose body. This guy yells, "Turn Dat Shit Up", and I am sure they will.
"Champagne Girl" - This track is a smokin smooth pumpy gliding floor filling massive with that sick and slick filter attacking bass line that produces mad smile and sweat. Sporadically strutting its funk rhythm and Synth motion with mind blowing transitional edits to match. For all those fly club going freaks that get the party started, a track has been made for you to make your DJ's life a little easier. Electro-House DJ's peep this one!!!
