David Guetta & Tom Staar – This Ain’t Techno
David Guetta‘s recent adventures have seen him take a detour to his Jack Back persona and dish out some sumptuous underground tracks. The highly revered Frenchman recently collaborated with Cevin Fisher for the energy-filled, groove-laced Tech house number ‘2000 Freaks Come Out‘, which was released on Mark Knight‘s Toolroom Records. With the influence of his Techno outing hard to get rid off in just one go, David Guetta is back with yet another track. Collaborating with English DJ and production virtuoso Tom Staar to deliver this Tech-influenced track, the two industry veterans are at their best in this latest Spinnin’ Records release. Backed by a quirky title, ‘This Ain’t Techno’ employs Techno adeptly to deliver an anthem-like release.
Founded on basic drum-work and vocal chops that waste no time in getting the listener shuffling side to side, ‘This Ain’t Techno’ begins as a mount of pure energy and as one waits, the track rewards in the most Tom Staar sense of the word possible – with an infectious drop that engages thoroughly. As the track goes through its many motions, what shines through is the sheer top-notch quality of the production as it maintains equity between the enthusing build-ups and the relatively relaxed other halves. Already supported by the likes of Afrojack, Blasterjaxx, Nicky Romero, Fedde Le Grand and Hardwell among a myriad others, ‘This Ain’t Techno’ was bound to be a sure success with David Guetta and Tom Staar being the names behind the production desk.
