Review: Later this month Dennis Cruz will release his debut album, Roots, a set that the experienced producer says is a "convergence of influences" including funk, salsa, flamenco, house and disco. We eagerly await that dropping, but first there's this teaser single to savour. In its original form, 'What You Doing' is a sparse, rolling late-night house jam in which emotion-rich female vocals rise above a sparse but weighty mix of loose-limbed house drums, metronomic bass, dark-room stabs and filtered, barely audible chords. German veteran Mousse T provides the accompanying remix, adding a dose of funk to proceedings via a squelchy bassline, warmer chords and some sparkling, smile-inducing piano riffs. His revision is available in both vocal and instrumental forms, with the former being our pick of a strong pair.
