Dirt Monkey and Nathaniel Knows – STR8 JACKN (Review)
WRITTEN BY CHRIS MCDONALD
This time around I decided to review the new Dirt Monkey and Nathaniel Knows track “STR8 JACKN”. Between the classic-like adaption of a deep house synth and the more future esqe rhythm, this track truly has it all! This is a definite huge surprise for Dirt Monkey fans who have grown accustomed to work with heavy bass musician Jansten over the last few years.
From the very starts of the introduction I was instantly intrigued (which is weird for me to say, as I am usually more reluctant to enjoy a prelude), but the hypnotic and somewhat soothing start truly grappled me in and certainly did not let down! I feel as if the climax is crafted quite finely, while also being extremely catchy. I hope to hear more tunes of this type of hybrid caliber pop up more often, as it is a very refreshing change!
I highly recommend you check out these two incredible producers other tunes out as they are truly onto something with your unique sounds that seem to be a growing entity to the underground sound of house!
