David Guetta’s Jack Back alias connects with Mark Knight’s Toolroom for ‘Grenade’
David Guetta returns to tech house via his new Jack Back moniker, teaming up with Mark Knight‘s Toolroom for a formulaic groover, “Grenade.” A classic house beat ride over a shy, filtered melody that echoes around the ears like wobbling metal. Vocals from Adam Freeland‘s “We Want Your Soul” come into play, setting up the arrangement for that swaying melody to come back with a vengeance, alongside an army of pounding kicks and percussion.
After disappearing for years, Guetta’s housier sounds made an appearance earlier in 2018 with the 12-track Jack Back Mixtape. A week later, he added onto his illustrious discography with the release of his highly-anticipated, double-sided 7 album, adding to the the French producer’s illustrious 2018. While 7 was a statement of pop-dominance overall, Guetta continues to remind listeners how he got there through house and techno releases.
