The prior are London’s hottest new Progressive House asset to date, the latter are modern British Electronica’s undisputed masters. Together, there was always going to be a vast degree of hysteria. Alongside diverse duo Cicada’s undeniable legacy at the forefront of the country’s forward thinking Electronic movement, newcomers Third Party have championed the likes of Size Records with back-to-back outings of intense club minded masterpieces.
In the same vein as ‘Duel’ and ‘Release’, Third Party’s momentous take on the infamous vocal sample of ‘Don’t Stare At The Sun’ – once the familiar soundtrack to a Revlon advert – shows little remorse for its ambient origins. Dealing in straight and sharp keys alongside solidly fashioned beat work, the London duo inject that signature energy and floor shaking persuasion into the original’s emotive vocal stylings for an intrepid romp into Dance music’s impassioned present. With forthcoming remodels of Red Hot Chili Peppers ‘Otherside’ and Stooshe’s ‘Fuck Me‘ already stirring support from across the industry, these boys are proving to be a powerful and genuinely ingenious force within modern Dance music.
