19-year-old, Australian prodigy Throttle is about to make his mark with his funk-infused single, ‘Money Maker’ featuring ‘Bills’ hit maker LunchMoney Lewis and former JLS star Aston Merrygold, out now via Spinnin’/Positiva.
The club mix was an infectious slice of Throttle’s famous ‘dirty disco‘ that combined a classic James Brown vocal sample with lashings of grooving house. Bold string arrangements, funky guitars and feel-good pianos all do battle with an energetic bassline, while breakbeat sections switch things up from the 4/4 beats. It was hard to see how this young producer could have made the track catchier still, but with the help of JLS singer Aston Merrygold and ‘Bills’ hit maker LunchMoney Lewis, he’s somehow done just that.
The soulful, powerful vocals of this dynamite duo elevate the track to an infectious state, a rejigged intro section helps build the energy, and along with its hilariously saucy new video it makes for a seriously potent package. ‘Money Maker’ looks set to be one of the big tracks of late summer.
Throttle is being pegged as Spinnin’ Records’ next prodigy, following in the footsteps of Afrojack, Martin Garrix and Oliver Heldens. The young Australian is rising to the top armed with advanced studio finesse, his beloved guitar and a clear idea of where dance music needs to go.
