Stylus - Got To Have It (Boogie Basics)

Los Angeles-based outfit Boogie Basics welcomes three-man DJ / production team Stylus to the roster, ushering in the group’s inaugural single “Got To Have It.” Comprised of Thee-O, Rob Pointer, and Luis Rosario, each member of Stylus brings nearly two decades worth of professional experience to the table. Simultaneously representing three of the country’s biggest house scenes - hailing from Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City respectively - Thee-O, Rob, and Luis have each accrued impressive accolades in their cities. From pioneering studios and directing industry software companies like Propellerhead, to founding fêted club nights and alternative festivals, Stylus is hardly short of experience or capability. Coming out with a bang, “Got To Have It” is an effective but somber melodic house hybrid with choppy tech-house tendencies. Slipping back and forth between chirping crescendos and bubbling synths, bits of organic timbre and rigid instrumentation create an obstacle course of complexity that doesn’t overwhelm. It’s a definite dance floor winner. If “Got To Have It” is any indication of things to come it’s fair to say that this is undoubtedly only the start of what will surely be a fruitful collaboration … the future looks bright.
