Pirupa is a producer who has quickly gained success through his ear for catchy hooks, a great vocal and fierce tech-house beats. The Italian has previously created 3 of the most downloaded tracks on Beatport; 2009’s ‘Sweet Devil’ (Noir Music), 2010’s ‘Get Funky’ (Cecille), and the iconic 2012 anthem ‘Party Non-Stop’ (Desolat/Defected).
Now he is back with this new certified dancefloor mover, a collaboration with Ninho that will be released on his new label NONSTOP on the 12th October. Arguably the Music On anthem of this season – Marco Carola requested the exclusive and has played it at every gig since – ‘Spin Me Round’ samples the vocals of the classic 1984 Dead Or Alive hit for a new twist on the classic floor-filling track.
Backed up by the 80s drums of the original and a driving bassline, the echoing vocals are teased in and out before launching into the full chorus. This sing-a-long moment gives way to a powerful drop filled with buss-saw synths and futuristic keyboard melodies.
As a Music On regular, it’s hardly surprising that Leon is on the remix duties for this EP. He puts a very different take on the original record; metallic reverb and a juddering beat build way into an atmospheric, grooving 8 minute piece of techno where the vocals are chopped up and used as decoration rather than leading the track – making the full chorus in the halfway breakdown all the more effective.
Also included on the EP is the full instrumental, which Carl Cox recently dropped in a set at his famous Space residency – further evidence that this track will soon become a future anthem.
