BEST NEW MUSIC: PROSPA - CONTROL THE PARTY
Some have called me a dance music soothsayer. A Nostradamus of the rave if you will. The music speaks to me and I’m able to look into my crystal ball and see the future. The last time I saw an entire career trajectory all laid out was when two brothers from Surrey, UK dropped a little jam called “White Noise.” BOOM, two years late r… Guy and Howard Lawrence (aka Disclosure) were just about the biggest thing to hit dance since Fatboy Slim Praised Us. Since then my senses have laid relatively dormant. What’s there even been to comment on? More of the same? House and techno and Tech-House and Houseno? Blah. It’s all good, but transcendent?
But recently my spider-sense has been tingling like mad every time I hear a new Prospa track. I close my eyes and see these two young gents (also from the UK) playing stadiums so big they haven’t even invented them yet. Mental. Prospa ARE the future of the rave. And they’re here and they’re now and Ima need y’all to give this one a listen so the truth can be set free and the future can happen already.
PROSPA - CONTROL THE PARTY
“Control the Party” is an absolute belter. The kind of dance floor annihilator that could, should, and likely will be busted out in any and every dance music set for the next year. From warehouses to stadiums, nightclubs to bedrooms-- this track is guaranteed to get people going. The synths are huge, the vocal sample compelling (and true!), and the drums are massive they can barely be contained in a file size big enough to fit on your computer. This is pure dance music salesmanship, as if these two are able to tap into the ether and see what will make bodies move. Prospa are the best thing out there right now, it’s just science.
From deep within the murky depths of the Los Angeles River emerged a creature: 50% raver, 50% comedian, 10% Robotcop. Kurt Kroeber doesn’t own a dog, operates Soundbleed (the world’s only dance party comedy talk show rave), and is down to party with you. Come up some time and say “Hey dude!” But definitely make sure to casually drop the secret Illuminati password.
