Following the success of their eEarl EP on Switzerlands Hive Records, Berlin-based House staple Oliver $ reunites with Swiss Jazz House aficionado Jimi Jules to bring their anticipated debut release on Defected. ePushing On opens with an infectious percussive medley composed of tropical triangles and melodious 808-like cowbells. With the gradual introduction of the moody, Frankie Knuckles inspired, bass line and tailing piano chords, the track slowly transforms into an energetic homage to classic Chicago House. Quick to take centre stage the track also features dusky vocal samples from Quantic Soul Orchestra, merging effortlessly with the wispy cymbal crashes, the songs title and central lyrical theme, iPushing Oni, falls and confidently rises to drive the track to its spirited climax. And for those who dont want the vocals theres a dub thrown in for good measure. Already household names in their home countries, ePushing On is sure set to solidify Oliver $ and Jimi Jules as international House providers.
