This Is It / Make Um Bounce (Single)
Released: Apr 2011
Addison Groove doesn't mess around with the two propulsive tracks on his latest single for the Tectonic label. Busting out the tightly looped toms and vocal samples of his breakout hit "Footcrab," he continues finding new ways to fold the hyperkinetic cadences of Chicago footwork into a bassy hybrid of U.K. funky and stripped-down house. "This Is It" is all strafing lasers and emphatic staccato beats, softened by liquid chords; "Make Um Bounce" loops the titular phrase over relentless syncopations and juicy acid squelch. One part London to two parts Chicago, it's like sipping on gin and juke.
