House Music Legend Rob Mello releases his debut single on Crosstown…, ‘Does It Feel Good, Baby? Hell yeah!!!
Having previously executed a couple of remixes for Crosstown, house music don Rob Mello now releases his debut single and what a corker it is! ‘Does It Feel Good Baby?’ makes a conscious nod to the past whilst charging full steam ahead with this unstoppable slice of hot house pie. A superb, spine tingling, earth shaking 4 to the floor house anthem featuring a stupendous vocal mix which is guaranteed to raise the roof on any floor old and new! The inspired vocal mix screams and shakes with old school classic resonance while those analogue stabs and keys pump the rhythm awn and awn. On the flip and we have another fantastic treat in the shape of a classic ‘No Ears Dub’. A drugged-out, dubby, detroit techno inspired monster of a dub, this is one for the heads…‘watch yer bassbins, i’m telling ya!‘
