Picture this, walking into a WMC party with sexy house music playing and looking up at the booth to barely see just the top of someone’s head. That was my my first introduction to the lovely and petite fireball Lupe Fuentes, who was rocking the Brobot party at the SLS hotel. Her set was a danceable mix of grooves, nu-House, funk, and progressive which blended a respect for classic house with a modern 2014 feel. Her new track “So High” fits that description as well. The classic synths from Lil’ Louis and David Morales productions, with a vocal sample that could be from a ’90s house anthem are blended into a sexy, chilled (but not subdued) track that works for the dancefloor but isn’t so aggressive that it can’t be enjoyed at a lounge or pre-bar. It is that brilliant mix of classic and “fewcha,” as Junior Sanchez says, which makes it no surprise why he signed Lupe to his label Brobot. Watch out for Lupe Fuentes, she is definitely a DJ/producer with a special talent.
