Bushwacka! – Get Up [Ultra Music]
It’s monumentally satisfying to witness Bushwacka! reaching for top form with this pitch-perfect, no-nonsense festival roof-raiser. The release ethic on ‘Get Up’ is equally refreshing, one track, no remixes and three versions; short, long and instrumental. This is House Music. Driving rhythms, machine bass, snare rolls, vocal samples and simple catchy melodies. Remember?
What Bushwacka! has done is create a monster of simplicity that does not set a foot wrong in any of its elements. the sum of the parts make its whole. It’s not commercial but you’ll hear this everywhere in Ibiza for the rest of the season. It’s fresh but with a nod to the halcyon days of rave where sweat dripped onto the decks and crackled through the speaker stacks. It is the sound of 10,000 people in the festival big-top and 50 at Pikes. It’s the sound of having a blast with a group of like-minded people.
I love this for being so emotive of an experience like dipping into Bushwacka’s memory bank and pulling out the best times.
Miss this, you guessed it, at your peril.
