Syv – Knockin’ (Original Mix)
Syv are Black Butter Records‘ latest new kids on the block. The label were first to clock the likes of Gorgon City and Rudimental, so when a fresh face makes their ranks, it’s usually wise to pay attention. With just a string of remixes to their name previously, the UK duo wastes little time kicking things into gear with their inaugural label offering.
Though ‘Knockin’ masquerades as a docile melodic track at times, it’s apex leaps into gear with serious two step swagger and prime bass movements. There’s a trace of heyday British garage in there, but somewhere along the line Syv have warped the sound with enough hazed-out attitude to hold its corner as an exciting new brand in UK dance music. Staying loyal to their homeland’s clubb-savvy pedigree whilst pushing the envelope for melodically cut records with a twist, Syv’s latest sound like a late runner for one of the most intriguing debuts of 2015.
