You’re at a club and the clock strikes 2am, you look around as shots (in Australia) begin to cease…and your only savior is the inevitable drop of, “The Next Episode,” track which kindly notifies you: IT’S TIME TO GO HOME. Whilst the original is generally played to slowly and/or tactfully wean people out of the klerb, this killer manipulation ropes you right back in! *Cue perfected and time-tested ‘The Next Episode’ dance move to accompany the track.*
Between all the almost on point mash-ups, screw-ups and half-hearted edits of this immortal oldie, comes this shining gem from Italian, Surfdisco. With origins as a party crew based in Rome, the “Surfdisco” name has spread across the seas, and has been making it’s presence known in Australia since a national tour at the beginning of this year. Through a string of collaborations with local legends, and regular Sydney appearances, Surfdisco is quickly gaining heat in the countryʼs rising house scene.
The highlight of the track is the way he utilizes change of pace throughout, creating an element of surprise. Combining house characteristics with their signature funky, hard-hitting bass lines and a classic hip-hop breakdown, this bootleg of Snoop and Dreʼs infamous ʻThe Next Episodeʼ explains why his popularity is on the rise.
