As some of you may know I am a dj, so it’s natural to test out some of these tunes on the dance floor and try to get a real feeling for them, watching the reaction of the audience and what not. In saying that, the latest installment of the “Street Series” from Liondub International is battle tested and positively approved! “No Mercy Tonight” is a tune that is guaranteed to make the people bounce. The nature of this tune is Jump Up, but because of the classic arrangement style and use of samples along with perfect bits that ragga sound we all know and love, this one doesn’t really feel like it has a timestamp. In a world of 2 day chart toppers, Brian Brainstorm is creating music that will be played for generations. The entire album is great, very heavy on the jump up sound, with some old school roots. This is currently available on Juno, Beatport and iTunes.. BUY IT AND PLAY IT LOUD!
