Today we’re stoked to give you an exclusive taste of house legend Kevin Knapp‘s latest track. Out on Crosstown Rebels, “Dancing With The Devil” showcases the expertise Knapp gained through a career that’s taken him to dance hotspots around the world.
Over a hard-hitting rhythm, stripped-back drums add another layer of groove. On the drop, Knapp hits us with echoing vocal chops and wavy synths. The winding bassline that makes its appearance on the chorus takes this track over the top.
This is tech house at its best, the type of track that reminds every house head why it’s so fun to connect with. Whether heard at a rave or even the comfort of your own home, this track just gives us that indescribable feeling of warmth in our hearts (and our feet).
Knapp described his influences on “Dancing With The Devil” as follows:
I’m always looking for ways to incorporate my indie rock history with my contemporary dance music sensibilities. On “Dancing With The Devil,” I found this amazing acapella from an inspiring vocalist – I’m stoked Damian has provided me with a platform to share it with folks. I think it’s a heater!
We also think it’s a heater, but you be the judge yourself. The track, including a remix by Detroit legend DJ Minx, will be out tomorrow. Until then, you can check it out below, enjoy!
