Our good pal UK house & techno DJ/producer Denney samples Mekon’s notorious ‘What’s Going On?’ original (released in 2000) for a summer reimagining coming via FFRR / Different Recordings.
‘What’s Going On?’ is abound with bopping bass lines and fiery 909s while retaining the retro feel of Mekon’s original. The result is a high-octane underground cut – complete with the original fly girl style hip hop vocal by Roxanne Shante’. Listen out for a catchy vocal hook and idiosyncratic sound effects that set the track apart from anything else you’ll hear from the underground this year.
Denney rose to underground fame with a number of acclaimed releases on labels like Hot Creations, VIVa Music, Crosstown Rebels, and many more. With huge support from Radio 1 so early on already, ‘What’s Going On?’ is sure to contend as one of the year’s strongest house and techno tunes.
