Native Underground is a new project by House music veteran, Henry Maldonado (House 2 House on Strictly Rhythm and Rhythm Section for MAW). Thinking his new project was missing a key ingredient, Maldonado decided that he needed somewhat of a George Michael-esq “sing-a-like”. So he turned his attention to craigslist for help and low and behold he soon found his vocalist. A short time later the man simply known as “Javi” was hired for the job and the pair wasted no time in recording the track “Till it Hurts” their first single off their new EP of the same name. Native Underground set about creating a sound reminiscent of the early/mid-eighties proto-house sound spun out at clubs like Jellybean Benitez’s Funhouse Club where Maldonado soaked up the vibes. Excellent weekend jams.
