Blog Single Of The Week

Rafa LaRocka – Besos Duros



Label: Nicetrax ukRelease: Out Now 

The shockingly unexpected passing of Scott Hardkiss earlier this year was a colossal loss, but the spirit which helped instigate a new form of transcendental funky dance music in the early 90s is living on through his collaborative brothers Gavin and Robbie and likeminded souls such as Mr LaRocka, whose new single is both tribute and lethal dancefloor missile in its own right.

Built on fiercely-percolating break beats, swirling keyboard undertow and subtle guitar motifs, the track is elevated by poignant synth melodies and soaring voices, becoming a heart-hoisting celebration which has already been aired in radio shows dedicated to Scott’s memory.

A world without Scott Hardkiss still seems inconceivably bereft, but with joyous celebrations like this building on his heavenly God Within template, he really doesn’t seem that far away any more and is no doubt grinning wildly somewhere.

Support Scott by supporting this rather lovely little creation.
