Electronic titans Bushwacka! & Carl Cox have come together for an epic new single ‘Music Is Life’ feat. Chuck Roberts on Oblong Records.
This pair barely need introducing – Carl Cox is the globally renowned face of electronic music who was there in the earliest days of the scene playing illegal raves and still leads from the front with his Intec label and electrifying DJ sets all over the world. Fellow Brit innovator Bushwacka! was also there at the birth of acid house and is renowned for laying down the blueprint of the first wave of tech house. He has crafted many seminal tunes, collaborates with legends and new school stars alike and never stops evolving.
Says Carl of this new single, “It’s such a great vibe and there is nothing that sounds like it right now. It’s paving the way forward,” while Bushwacka! adds that “every time this gets played, the dance floor goes bonkers – it’s really special, and busting with energy.”
They’re not wrong. The huge ‘Music Is Life’ (Main Mix) features Chuck Roberts, the universally recognised voice of house music. He delivers a rhythmic vocal and wordless ad-libs that heighten the bouncing energy of the track and intensify the groove. The drums are heavy, the snares are raw and militant and the twitchy synths ensure brains will be boggled when this one is heard loud. The Deep Mix is more stripped back and rides on rubbery drums and bass. Smeared synths bring warmth and soul for late-night sessions full of atmosphere.
This is an epic new release from two bona fide legends of the scene.
