“Dance or Die” is a culmination of deep house, tech house, and jacking house. It’s a funky, whimsical track that has great anthemic potential. It’s one of those tracks where you’ll get the overwhelming urge to get up and shake a leg or two, and bask in how infectious the rhythm is. It also has a few twists and turns, and exudes a level of maturity and innovation from its creators. “Dance or Die” has only scraped the surface for both up-and-comers, and if it’s anything to go by, their futures are going to be furiously bright.
