Iconic dance label Play It Say It welcome New York artist David Berrie for a first EP on the label and one that offers three dynamite pieces of punchy, high impact and inventive house music.
Raised amongst the diverse culture of NYC’s nightlife, Berrie started sneaking into clubs as a youngster and since then has risen through the ranks to have now played iconic rooms like Output NY and DC-10 Ibiza. Fusing his musical history with other genres to create his own unique style of house and techno, David has taken his passion to the studio and served up essential tunes on Hot Creations and Cuttin’ Headz.
Opening the account is ‘Revolution’, seven superbly programmed minutes of slick and involving house beats and knotted bass. It’s a restless, body shaking track to make the floor move with futuristic synths fleshing it out and bringing a vital sense of machine sound.
The equally compelling ‘JB Loop’ is another dynamic bit of electronic house music. Rubbery drums bobble and bounce about with wild computer sounds and infectious bass all ramping up the energy levels and making for a standout track. With ‘Rear End’ rounding off the EP, showcasing David’s penchant for the percussive, the American uses thumping drum pads with unmistakable high hats and futuristic synths.
Spending his formative years in New York, playing the city’s diverse nightclub circuit, David Berrie was heavily influenced by a broad spectrum of genres. Taking his passion to the studio, David soon released on Jamie Jones’ Hot Creations label earlier this year with collaborative EP ‘Doctor Zouk’, and has enjoyed a number of releases on labels such as Nervous Records and Monique Musique.
