REVIEW: Danny Howard - Don't Wanna Stop out on Spinnin' Deep

Prominent dance music advocate Danny Howard returns to Spinnin’ with a new single, ‘Don’t Wanna Stop’, available to purchase from the 19th September.

The upbeat production features a classic disco guitar line, uplifting strings, a stomping bassline and an echoing diva vocal for a dancefloor-ready result.
“I’m so happy I can finally release this little disco banger! I made it with my Pacha Ibiza residency in mind this summer and it’s been sounding big every time I play it. The sound is a little different to anything I’ve ever released which makes it even more exciting so I hope you dig it as much as I do.” – Danny Howard

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Danny Howard is well respected DJ and his DJ set at Creamfields 2016 at the Cream Mega Arena really made the difference. His track Don't Wanna Stop is a clear cut disco house production that is packed with funky basslines, classic disco style strings, disco guitar riffs and cool house diva vocal sample that is repeated again and again. The result is a very descent and danceable record perfect for any underground disco house sets. I feel though what is missing is the full vocal to finish off the proceedings nicely. You have the impression that full vocal or a strong  top line could make the difference. The drop is energetic enough but certainly required more bounce and boogieness to give the track a special cutting edge. #PureFun Love It  [/content]
