Vato Gonzalez & The Young Punx – “Body Harder”

Vato Gonzalez teams up with The Young Punx to bring you their new club smash “Body Harder”. The song is built around the brass stabs and siren from Quincy Jones’ iconic “Ironside” theme, made famous by Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” in more recent years. Add a pulsating bassline, a seductive dancehall hook and you’ve got yourself a banger that will make your body move harder, faster, stronger! With earlybird supporters like David Guetta, Robbie Rivera, Andi Durrant (Capital FM), Danny Howard (BBC Radio 1), and Steve Smart (Kiss FM) this collab is set to be huge.

Return To The Valley Of The Super Shooters

“Return To The Valley Of the Super Shooters” sees The Young Punx and friends in nostalgic mood, lovingly harking back to the golden era of UK Jungle. With Memphis-rapper Count Bass D spitting in clear homage to Zinc’s legendary “Super Sharp Shooter” (itself a lift from LL Cool J), and classic junglist beats to boot, the Young Punx Delorean is targeted firmly at 1995. But with a heavy lacing of post-dubstep basslines from Phonat dominating the low end, and a quirky collection of Theremins and Circuit-bent Stylophones tweaking over the top this is very much a 21st Century track, with a wry nod to music that inspired its creators back in the day.
