Embedded within the House genre, ‘Do It’ kicks off with a typical House beat, later introducing a deep kick to intensify the mood. The vocals are put into the equation to get started on the melodic side of things, whilst an infectious lead synth melody takes over. A powerful ascension gives way to a forceful rendition of the main chorus before breaking into a mellower vocal section. A pitch-shifted version of the lead synth melody drives the single forward together with the smooth vocals before bursting into another punchy chorus. The production team takes full control of dynamics, offering different variations of the main section before stripping away energy for a softer conclusion.
‘Do It’ is now part of Jungle Funk Recordings’ developing catalogue.
