Out now: bfan.link/cant-you-see-ep
A pair of Thomas Newson house stormers that power through with big energy – all the introduction you need about the Netherlands producer’s next move into mega-streaming territory. Off the back of his Epic247 track that got everyone ‘Talking About’ – a top 50 pick on 1001Tracklist’s 2021 tech house round-up – ‘Can’t You See’ is belted out by a classic house diva on top of a simple but devastating synth zigzag with a touch of definitive Chicane or Ruff Driverz about it. The piano interlude recalls Kariya’s ‘Let Me Love You For Tonight’ – another tick – and a rocket-charged breakdown shoots this instantly into modern classic territory.
‘Want You Back’, with tech house between Thomas’ gritted teeth and a meatier bottom end swamping the dancefloor, is a straight-up thrust again making the most of simple, addictive melodies that are fit for a superclub. Jinking back and forth and relishing the thrill of the hunt as the vocal’s loud whispers beckon, if the riff doesn’t grab you, the bass breakdown will simply devour you. A sound recalling pre-millennial heydays and destined to get clubs crammed, Newson is a perfect fit for the Epic247 label, home to the highly acclaimed likes of Shapov, Magnificence, Laura van Dam and Corey James.
The son of the legendary Marco V, Thomas Newson is definitely making the route to the top on his own terms – half a million monthly listeners on Spotify agree; Calvin Harris, Afrojack, Low Steppa, Claptone, Diplo, David Geutta and Tiesto likewise. Triumphant performances at Tomorrowland, Creamfields, Ultra Miami, Space and Ushuaia show Newson has the power to get massive crowds lifted, and a back catalogue has crossed all the scene’s labels making the most noise, including a remix of ‘Luvstruck’ – one of Marco V’s most memorable moments as part of Southside Spinners. Always raising his game (and vibes) with subtle nods to house music’s past, Newson’s potential knows no bounds.
