New single from Vanilla Ace puts a new hip hop spin on modern house.
When you think of the typical sound of house music, chances are you think of some clean cut synth hooks with heavy beats and a marching hypnoticism. For the most part, you’d probably be right.
The part you overlook in such a description, however, is the most interesting. If there were any doubts about this, Vanilla Ace eliminates them with new single Whistle Blower. The track is brimming with uncontrollable energy and sweeping rhythms, all led by the infectious whistle-dominated lead hook that gives the whole track a 90s-throwback techno feel. This, combined with the hip hop samples and relentless drums, builds a track that is house as you’ve rarely heard it before.
