Dutch powerhouse and “Dirty House” pioneer Vato Gonzalez (né Björn Franken) continues his hugely popular Riddims series with the explosive B52 Riddim, and we here at LessThan3 are thrilled to present the exclusive first listen.
Don’t let the title fool you–this is no Rock Lobster knock-off. No, B52 Riddim draws inspiration from the same source that kitschy dance-pop band did: the fearsome B-52 bomber. And given the gritty electro ferocity in play here, it’s a fitting comparison. Gonzalez sets his sights on soundsystem obliteration, and B52 Riddim delivers with devastating, militaristic efficiency. Handle with care when the track drops on Beatport on May 16, via Ultra Records.
