In no way is 'Detox' a dancefloor cleanse. Jay de Lys is the man in charge, holding his own on the title track and sharing duties with Alex Wellmann on 'Nothing More' for Clarisse's 75th release. Bringing the best beats from Buenos Aires, de Lys is in a hurry to get to the top: championed by Pete Tong for the dance godfather's 'New Names Mix' for 2018, the co-owner of Expensive Records crams his schedule with global releases, touchdowns and takeoffs, but is no stranger to sharing the limelight following releases alongside Marco Grosso, Jamie Roy and Lucas Radez. 'Detox' also marks a quick reunion with Wellmann after this year's 'Guettin' EP on the Tenerife-based Roush Label.
Filtering classic diva wails throughout the mix, the 'Detox' diet is one made up of clattering hi-hats, cowbell galore, assistive hip-hop snippets and pulsing bass timekeeping, deep and funky to push you through the other side of midnight as de Lys cracks the whip and controls the explosions. Action-packed from first beat to last, yet with all elements coming together in perfect harmony, it's a party vibe until steam starts to rise.
An in-demand figure at Five Finger Discount, Material/Playmobil Masters and Killer Vibe, Wellmann jumps on 'Nothing More' and gives you nothing less than jack-heavy house glossed with lovelorn vocals. Put to work by stuttering rhythms and a bassline with no time for slackers in the back, the duo land the ideal mix of sassy lyrics that perch and pout on top of a bottom end prepared to go bulldozing, repeating the means of straight-to-the-point and stirring it up.
