The Brussels-based producer Lex Newton comes back into the spotlight with “Back To NY EP”. His warmly welcomed remix of Blizzard on Electronical Reeds makes this release a highly anticipated one. The eponymous track brings back the old school spirit with some fresh groove, and is a tribute to one of the birthplace of House music, New York City. The rhythm sets up quickly as well as a warm black male voice that reminds of vocals from another birthplace of House music, Chicago. The tracks then build up with a powerful bass and screaming horns, not unlike some old disco standards from the Big Apple. Chicago-style vocals, New York-inspired mood and catchy drums make for a glowing tribute track that will set dance floors on fire.
The “42nd Street” is a famous NYC street just a few steps away from Times Square, hosting probably the most world-renowned musicals. It certainly can be considered as a landmark of the city that never sleeps. Not unlike this lively street, the track relies on its powerful melody and effective groove to get the audience dancing. Add a kick with added vitamin, a simple yet bouncy bass line and a delay-based climax to the mix, and you’ve got the perfect prime time track for your set.
To close this three-track EP, Lex Newton offers one of his specialty, a cappuccino prepared the Lex Newton way, generally called the Funkaccino. This beverage, which preparation is kept secret, offers a delicate but flavorsome aroma. The key of this blend resides in the selection of its ingredients: a strong House coming from the roasting of a carefully cultivated Tech House, topped with a light vocal cream. This energizing drink is already recommended by many specialists that have been able to notice its highly positive effect on a dancefloor.
