From off the mean streets of Gotham City, we nabbed young upstart Tony Quattro to deliver two killer tunes that are pure J-J-J-John Blaze. Of course, Tony has already been on his grind: blazing up blogs like Hush House and Gotta Dance Dirty, playing with Bondax, getting love from Boomkat and Mad Decent and all the rest. Schooled in a solid foundation of UK bass and US house flavors, Tony Quattro he keeps it nice for the dancefloor with that proper dose of Big Apple attitude on this double A-side.
“New York Anthem” is a catchy 4/4 workout with serious anthem potential: pumping, sexy lowend, horns hotter than a summer’s day and an arrangement that keeps the dancers going for more. We’ve been playing this one out a lot and we can report it’s not only fierce but super versatile, fitting perfectly no matter what house vibe you’re on.
“Forth and Seek,” a collaboration with fellow NYC producer Doctor Jeep and ballroom house producer/vocalist B. Ames, gets truly nasty (in a good way), pairing bad-ass Baltimore beats with a vogueing vocal feel that is 110% pure booty drop mayhem. This track mixes up house music with hiphop attitude in a way you haven’t seen since Jungle Brothers and Bobby Konders were kings. Please Quattro don’t hurt ’em!!!
