Burnin' Up

Tony Junior⁠ & REGGIO

Tony Junior and REGGIO are two names every Revealed Recordings devotee will surely be familiar with already. From the big-room operatic motion of ‘Odin’, over to the militant, attention-grabbing work heard on ‘Legacy’ both artists shine both in solo stead and in their own respective collaborative fields, as now they unite to get things ‘Burnin’ Up’.

As, unbelievably, only Tony Junior’s second release on the imprint after already stirring up interest previously, the pairing here twist their productions deeper to more cavernous depths, a distorted vocal motioning to burnin’ up and Bacardi in a cup mutates atop an almost progressive-feeling backdrop that then spins out of the stratosphere. Bringing jackin’, jump-up beats that add a bite of attitude to the big-room genre, it’s abrasive push-and-pull of synth grabs attention, as 8-bit flutters add another dimension of hyperactivity.
