Chilean-born Francisco Allendes returns to the mighty Crosstown Rebels label for the first time in six years this May. Serving up the three-track What You Do, the title number has already received global airplay via Damian Lazarus himself and a never ending list of other DJs all over the world. A contemporary dose of four-on-the-floor house, ‘What You Do’ leaves few prisoners in its wake, as rampant drum patterns converge on a heady combination of kicks, synths and irresistible vocals right the way through. There’s an infectious energy to the track, paving the way for Harry Romero’s similarly up-tempo remix. The NJ maestro shows why he is one of the most consistent characters in House Music for many years. His version pushes many right buttons and is of the highest quality available. In general, this is feel-good, club-ready dance music at its best, packed full of low-slung groove that opens neatly into the closing sequence: ‘Maratone’, a stripped-back, techy cut that bears all the hallmarks of a true Ibiza anthem, which closes the package in style.
