Boston DJ/Producer and Ultra Music Festival mainstay Richard Fraioli drops an epic new track to launch his new soundcloud after soundcloud took away roughly 5 years of work, 10k + followers and almost a half a million plays on his old page (Come on SC what are you doin?). Notwithstanding, being the level headed, stand guy up he is, he rebounded quickly by booking his 9th year playing Ultra Music festival, re-releasing all his classic mixes and all his old tracks with an added new free banger called “Are You Sure?”.
I’ll say this right now, I’m not usually the guy that covers house music on this site. I’m a basshead so I usually steer away from the mainstage sounding stuff to find the more obscure, gnarly bass music that’s usually found with the spunions on the side stages (My People). However, I saw the hometown homie had posted a new track and I wanted to support because he’s what we in the industry call a DJ’s DJ. He’s shared stages with some of the biggest names in the game, you can always count on this guy to crush any crowd you put him in front of and as just as good on stage as he is the studio. So I pressed play then I found myself back in the mindset my old house music days when I was younger pumping my fist, spilling my drink and started bouncing around the room until I came back down enough to write about it. This track is just packed with layers of hard hitting house synths, pounding drum kicks, beautiful key work and a heavy Melbourne bounce influenced drop that just saws through your ear drums and beats you over the head like a bass hammer. I dare someone not to start 2 steppin’ when this comes on the club…I fucking dare you!
All in all, Richard Fraioli shows us what that MOTHER F#%KING House Music is all about. It’s straight forward, dance your ass off music and tracks like this is just good ammo for any DJ trying to get a dancefloor going. It’s a travesty and a shame that this dudes soundcloud got pulled so make sure to hit up all his pages and throw him some likes and follows. Stay tuned because there’s more on the way but in the meantime…TURN THOSE MOTHERF#%KING SPEAKERS UP!
