Chicago electronic producer/DJ Boathouse is on an ascendance. Aside from DJing for upcoming MC Kweku Collins, the Closed Sessions signee has been cooking up his own sound, of which the entrancing “Crowd Go Loose” is the first offering. The smooth track, relying on a frigid synth and a thumping dancefloor-ready groove marks a slight sonic transition for Boathouse, as well as a compelling example of his capability to blend genres.
Boathouse released the track today, fresh from London. Boathouse seemingly crafted the track there, feeling the vibes of grime’s tremendous influence in the area –particularly Dizzee Rascal, the progenitor of one of Boathouse’s favorite projects in Boy in Da Corner. That influence is why Chicago house, electronic, and grime meet at one on this four minute offering, which served as a “slight homage” to Rascal. Go loose into the Fall with this record, and stay on the lookout for more offerings from Boathouse.
