New Jersey’s finest is back with a pounding vocal track on Crosstown Rebels and it’s one of those rare tracks that combine energy, a superb vocal and spheric deepness into a really nice piece of House Music. We don’t need to introduce ex Constipated Monkey and long time Subliminal artist Romero here, so we can get straight deeper into the track itself: ‘It Hurts’ sets off with tribal drum patterns, as Jessica Eve’s hypnotic vocals enter and lead to a sweeter atmosphere. Whispering hats compliment the bassline throughout, helping to form a quintessential peak-time number. Rodriguez Jr.’s remix is on the flip, French talent proves with his six minutes of emotive electronic music, that he’s definitely a man to watch. Stripped-back kicks move forward into gentle key chimes, creating a signature poignant cut. All in all a very good House record!
