Mike Hawkins, Henry Fong, Toby Green – Hot Steppa (Original Mix)
The growing world of dance music depends on the next generation of musicians and producers to take the beloved culture to its next level. Mike Hawkins, Henry Fong and Toby Green are young names that have been given tons of recognition for their developing popularity and work with electro and big room production. With today’s Spinnin’ Records release, “Hot Steppa,” spectators continue to see the roaring potential these artists flaunt. Through various transitional drum fills come a hint of triplets that foreshadow characteristics of the group’s compositional choices. The trio integrates a strong dancehall vibe with brass horn-like synth leads and regular stabs on the up-beat, creating a nice bounce feel. For all you heavy electro junkies who crave high energy, the verses lead to an explosive drop with enough crunchy growls to keep on repeat. Just try not to damage your eardrums in the process.
