NYC Beat is a retro dancefloor monster with a modern twist. With an exceptional bassline and an infuriatingly catchy vocal loop, the track has been picking up some major steam on Radio 1 and other mega playlists.
The single will be released on May 28th, 2007 with a fine array of remixes by MSTRKRFT, Emperor Machine and Detroit. NYC Beat is taken from Armand Van Helden's latest artist album 'Ghettoblaster' released in April 2007.
About Ghettoblaster: An incendiary call to arms, Ghettoblaster, from the unambiguous
title to the thrilling sounds contained therein, is an unapologetic throwback to dance musicís joyous infancy. Indeed, as Armand puts it: "On this album I was going for a retro throwback 1985-89 soul up-tempo urban type sound. Chicago meets Miami meets New York City kind of thing. Or to put it differently, house meets freestyle meets hip-house meets club meets new wave."
