If it were 2008, we would say that this track has been generating a lot of buzz online. It’s not, so we won’t – but you get the picture. Dance veteran Paul Woolford has revealed only that the track is called (somewhat unimaginatively) ‘Untitled’. It starts off with fairly unforgiving percussion and bass, before one of the year’s most explosive piano riffs changes things and the track transforms into a soulful, retro house banger.
Given its tantalising fade out after two minutes, it’s slightly infuriating that this is the only version that exists – but it’s safe to say that it’s blowing up. Scuba may be biased, given the track’s imminent release on Hotflush , but when Waze & Odyssey and Huxley are both describing it in exactly the same terms as “sound of the summer”, either there’s some kind of conspiracy going on or it’s going to be really big. Or both.
