(Premiere) Per QX and Zoo Brazil – Give It Up

Jul 14 2015

Fresh on the heels of last summer’s hit, “Save Us,” Swedish producers Per QX and Zoo Brazil have come together for “Give It Up,” out this week on Noir Music. Clocking in at 119 bpm, the track is a slow burning deep house hit. Featuring dark, moody chords, an 808 rimshot, and bittersweet lyrics about a love that just can’t quit, “Give It Up” conjures up the smoky dance floors of late 80s/early 90s classic house. Of course, the real hook is the soulful vocals almost sinisterly singing, “Never gonna give you up… though I try. I find it hard to lie. Yes I do.” As the track slowly builds, the tension increases giving the vocals a hint of desperation that fades back into the smoke of the outro.

The release also includes two remixes from the legendary Kevin Saunderson and his son Dantiez, one 90’s inspired mix and a more contemporary tech house one, and two remixes from Spanish techno duo Pig & Dan, including an instrumental rub. You can buy the track and its remixes here.
