DJ Sneak - Psycho Killer
The vital No.19 Music continues to serve up essential club weapons, this time with a hotly anticipated offering from the legendary DJ Sneak.
DJ Sneak is an original Chicago house gangster who pioneered the filter house sound and has continued to evolve and adapt over the ensuring years. His I’m A House Gangster label is a go to outlet for high quality, ‘floor rocking grooves and his own powerful sets continue to blow crowds away around the world. Now he’s back with what is sure to become a surefire summer anthem and one of his biggest tracks to date.
The brilliantly frenzied ‘Psycho Killer’ features re-recorded Talking Heads vocals by Franco-American Charlie Sputnik. His standout delivery captures the tortured, freaky feeling of the original as gliding drums and hits form the groove below. Overdriven percussion adds to the intensity of a cut that is guaranteed to make a huge impact in any set. The track has already been creating quite a stir, featuring in the sets of Jamie Jones, Ricardo Villalobos and Art Department at the likes of Amnesia and Kappa Festival, whilst Eats Everything has given the record an early preview on BBC Radio 1.
Alongside the original is an excellent raver dub, which is more stripped back with the focus on the driving house groove and a free roaming, brain-melting bassline that snakes down below. It’s another high-octane track that will blow up the party. A radio edit is also included with some wild guitars layered in for extra madness.
This is a massive package that will detonate any club with its impressive energy levels and excellent re-working of such anthemic vocals.
