Route 94 – House & Pressure

• “House & Pressure” set to channel graphics. Thanks to SubSoul.

7.5 “Great Club from England”

Single released in June, 2017.

Rowan Tyler Jones, known by his stage name Route 94, is a producer and DJ from Richmond, London.

This was the long-awaited “proper” follow-up to his smash “My Love”, which had shot him to #1 in the UK Pop Charts over 3 years earlier.

I can hardly believe I’m featuring a pop star of the Radio 1 ilk, an absolute rarity these days for sure.

An old-skool production frames the cut, with a cracking repetitive bassline and some intriguing spoken word, inferring some sort of domestic drama. A bit of detective work reveals these to be sampled vocals of Linda Clifford via Joey Negro’s “Ride the Storm” from back in the early 00s.

DJ Rebel tips # 732: back-2-back with Farley Jackmaster Funk’s “Love Can’t Turn Around” to maximize the joy for those ravers : – )
