Fresh off the back of final touches to their rebrand, Tom Staar‘s label Staar Traxx celebrate with a massive summer hit ‘The Iberian’ by US compatriots Frank Nitty and Al Sharif.
“The Iberian” is a latino inspired anthem with a strong Mariachi stand off feel, blazing trumpets leading to an atmospheric breakdown which builds to a driving beat coupled with the trumpet ‘hook’ triggered every 8 bars.
The next breakdown seeking to double the intensity with drum rolls and brass building to the final climactic beat cutting through to provide a jumping ode to latino passion and energy.
Another clear indication of things to come from the UK label, who have been evolving consistently to putting out feel good house music but never losing the big, room filling sound that put them so emphatically on the map.
Summer is here and Staar Traxx leads the celebrations, following the sensationally optimistic, invigorating ‘Sunshine’ by Rob & Jack, who teamed up with the label’s head honcho Tom Staar, which was followed byLeandro Da Silva and Stage Rockers and their energetic and dance floor galvanizing ‘La Corrida’.
Staar Traax adds another great weapon on its arsenal, following our favorite till now “Badlands” by talented Simon Alex and AK9. Although Tom Staar‘s imprint latest release comes from Antoine Clamaran vs. Divolly & Marward, Jude & Frank bringing a fresh sound to the 2003 hit ‘Zumba E’, a rendition which uses the vocal hook sample in masterful fashion, building the record in the breakdown and giving this record a real peak time feel.
“The Iberian” by Frank Nitty and Al Sharif will be out on Tom Staar‘s imprint on August 17th.
