Baila Loco is the brand new two-tracker from Rafa Barrios that showcases the artist’s explosive house style.
This Spanish DJ and producer has been heard around the world with everyone from Richie Hawtin to Carl Cox reaching for his dynamic grooves. They have come on established labels like Saved Records, Stereo Productions and Knee Deep in Sound and never fail to get the dance floor locked in. His attention to detail really elevates his tracks above purely functional material and both cuts here prove that.
Excellent opener ‘Baila Loco’ is a tense Tech House track with a heart-swelling female vocal bursting out of the groove. Metallic hits and snaking, frazzled synths layer up the tension and help send things into raptures. This is a cut that manages to be both physically and emotionally powerful. Things speed up on the slick, bumping house track ‘Forze.’ Icy hi hats race over rubbery drum programming with a gooey bassline undulating won low. Some off-grid, de-tuned keys add wonkiness next to a freaky vocal and ensure this one will always stand out.
These are two stylish and effective club tracks from one of Spain’s finest.
