Vaughn Oliver, is an LA based producer who makes up half of the Electronic Music production duo, Oliver, alongside his partner Oliver Goldstein. On this one however, the latter was left out and Mr. Vaughn took on the alter ego: U-Tern. ’You Don’t Know Me’ is quite simply a sonic serving of disco madness using today’s top notch production styles, techniques, and sounds. In other words, it rocks!
You Don’t Know Me begins like a beautiful, hip, cool, and very young seductress gearing up to kick some ass somewhere in LA’s night scene. As she gets her car keys and leather gloves on, the bassline and synths completely take over the ride and transfer it over to some non-stop disco dancing featuring some of LA’s most beautiful bodies as they party up like it’s the last night they will be doing so.
The production features minimal vocals which U-Tern manages to place in just the right spaces throughout the record. As most of you already know, I’m a sucker for strong claps, and although sometimes the claps here are tucked right underneath the synths, at the times which they do overpower the rest of the record, you get transient heaven, which in turn makes your head and shoulders shake, shake, shake away. The overall groove keeps your tushy in constant dance mode, and what seems to me to be a great “7 chord progression” allows for the rest of your body to desire joining in on the festivities.
Play this before you’re ready to take off on a night in the town and enjoy it at loud volumes at home, in your car, in the club, or even blaring throughout your headphones.
