Strike It 04:40


Chicago house favourite Mike Dunn delivers his latest dose of extravagant funk on Classic Music Company, drawing inspiration from ballroom culture for this captivating release. Embodying the full energy of a ball the track's vocal, provided by Ruff N'Stuff who was involved in the ballroom scene in Chicago, echoes the long-held traditions of the MC central to proceedings and hyping up the crowd and competitors. Honey Dijon's snapping, elasticated Re-Edit of the aptly titled 'Strike It' opens the release, a popping bassline and expressive percussion adding to the crisp, sonic sharpness created by the demanding vocal. Mike's original version follows; a bumping dose of Chicago goodness with atmospheric builds and his signature dynamic, multi-layered sound shining through at its finest. Capturing the essence of a ball in mid-flow, this is undoubtedly a track designed to move your body.
