A quick sampling of local producer/DJ David Serrano’s Soundcloud page reveals a versatility within the non-commercial realm of electronic dance music. Earlier this week, the resident at Urban Turban’s Warp LV party revealed his hard-driving techno side with his remix of Hawk’s “Soldier.” And then there’s his straight-up house preferences, showcased beautifully on “Moving On,” which he crafted with fellow Vegas producer/DJ Fernando Alvarado (aka F3R). Multiple vocal samples—including the echoey, dominant one exclaiming “I’m moving on!”—lay atop a repeating five-note synth melody, swinging bassline, sharp high-hat and four-on-the-floor slaps. Given the current fixation on tech and minimal house, it’s nice to hear something a little more soulful.
