PREMIERE: Kill Your Heroes deliver a classic house fever on their new, free track
There’s a hot new project coming at you via Sydney and San Diego. They’re choosing to remain anonymous in their individual personas, but collectively, they’re known as KILL YOUR HEROES. The duo have been making waves across the world, with last year’s debut EP Take It Easy, embodying a self-aware branch of house that harkens back to the early era of the genre.
Last year they were picked up by Roger Sanchez to release on his seminal house imprint, Undr The Radr. They followed this announcement up with a stellar single, ‘The Interview’, which made its way across dancefloors all over the globe, being spun by the likes of Hot Since 82, Gorgon City, Claude VonStroke, Riva Starr, Claptone and more.
Aside from finishing up their forthcoming EP, set to be out May 24th through their own imprint, Supa Traxx, they’ve been working hard in the studio. To tide us over until the EP’s release, they’ve given us a taste of what’s been happening on planet Kill Your Heroes, and we’re stoked to be premiering it today.
‘Lover Who Rocks You’ takes one hell of a purist’s approach to house music, complete with a soul-filled vocal line, crisp hats and one funky bassline. As the track progresses, those classic house piano chords come slowly careening in, accenting just before the 1 beat and adding a sense of impending euphoria that slowly builds and finally releases.
It’s one hell of a house track, taking you on a journey through the genre’s history, building the mood with classic vocals and adding a touch of 2019 flair to it in the vocal manipulation and deep-house bass-line.
You can download Kill Your Heroes‘ ‘Lover Who Rocks You’ for free via the SoundCloud link above.
