New Retro House from Tensnake
Despite having a relatively small number of releases and remixes to his name, Tensnake’s output belies his immense reputation. An undoubted proponent of the quality-over-quantity mantra, his sound is as instantly recognisable as it is infectious. Due for release on Defected next week, Tensnake’s new single ‘Mainline’ is a hooky, bass-driven house anthem of the very highest order, and features the assured vocal performance from the acclaimed Rudimental collaborator and Radio 1 Xtra favourite Syron. With a thumpingly retro bassline, snappy 909-styled hats and a chopped and re-pitched vocal which winds its way around the main refrain, ‘Mainline’ is a positive and worthy reimagining of the ‘glory days’ of house music. With its feel-good, retro house stylings, assured vocal performance, and plenty of plays from Pete Tong already, the new release from Tensnake looks set to be as big as its feline predecessor.
