“Low volume settings should be avoided at all costs for a song like Amp Live’s latest single, “Turn It Up.” With the new song, the producer, best known for his work as one half of the hip-hop duo Zion I, is preparing fans for the release of his album, Murder At The DiscoTech, while simultaneously announcing a new release date for the project, now scheduled for a June 15th release through Om Records.
The single kicks off, appropriately, with an electronic voice commanding the listener to turn up the volume before a deep bass beat emerges joined by the vocal stylings of guest MC, Mickey Factz, well known for his own forays into electro-inspired, club-oriented hip-hop and also a past collaborator with Amp through work with Zion I and their recent Search And Seizure mixtape. A long-time pro of melding various genres into hip-hop, Amp’s expertise is on full display with this new single: The tracks deep bass, resonating synthesizer lines, and highly addictive drums make the single perfect for the nearest set of bass-booming speakers a listener can get their hands on. Upon completion, selecting the song to serve as a single from the album was a no-brainer. “It was definitely super solid beat banger that I set out to make,” says Amp of the final product. “I was wanting to do a song with Mickey Factz for a while, and everything came together perfectly for this song.””
