Dutch producer Elliot Fitch combines contagious energy with melancholic touches on the euphoric house track “What You Do To Me,” which throws back into a different era of the genre with a smooth wash of melodic pianos and bouncing drums elevated by soulful female vocals. Channeling Fitch’s fierce passion for the emotional nuances of disco music, the track thrums with summery, '90s era sounds that give it a timeless vibe.
Highly groovy chords meet crisp elegance within this glitterball soundscape, which highlights the Netherlands-born talent’s natural gift for capturing hearts with sonics that are minimal on the surface yet brilliantly complex and layered on every note. Encapsulating how transportive music can really be, Fitch brings fresh perspectives to a genre that never goes out of style as it begs to be played over and over.
Making his presence in house music known this year through two top-notch offerings, glamorous disco slice “The One,” and soulful house number, “Next To Me,” this latest track sees Sander van Donkelaar establish himself as his creative persona of Elliot Fitch with conviction, dedication and easy talent.
