DJ Haus - Thug Houz Anthems Vol. 4

  • Share
  • DJ Haus's schtick—stripped-back club tracks made with minimal fuss—is by now well established. With all-caps track titles and endlessly repeating dance floor mantras, Thug Houz Anthems Vol. 4, a pretty self-explanatory series that began in 2013, gathers four more of his bumping, oversexed ghetto house jams. Along with metal-detector synth wails, muggy bass groove, and vocal loops, only "HOT IN DIS MUTHAFUCKA" has any hint of the acid that Haus often deals in. "GET THA FUCK OUT" is a more jagged, slightly less enjoyable iteration of the opener, its sledgehammer bass stomp and metallic keys battling for attention with another repetitious vocal. The last two tracks are more fleshed-out, but still utilitarian. With an infectious sax riff ducking under and over brickbat snares and fragments of a soulful female vocal, "NEED SUM TIME" is the pick of the EP. "WORK UR BOODY" is louder and more gritty, though its lascivious come-ons are the EP's smoothest sample. At a time when producers regularly turn out raw club tracks, DJ Haus continues to be ahead of the pack.
