Heaps of buzz revolving around the young gun, Henry Fong, as of late. The Los Angeles by way of Orlando producer is quickly surpassing huge benchmarks for such a young age, releasing a string of originals and remixes on Hysteria, Mad Decent, OWSLA, Dim Mak, and Spinnin’ in less than 6 months. The gas tank appears to still be plenty full, too, with the monster single, “Stand Up,” seeing release February 11th on OWSLA.
Fong sees his early influences in the new original, with the Hip Hop-inspired vocal present in “Stand Up” bringing him back to the days of DJing college bars and parties — a time that in actuality isn’t so long ago, but with Henry’s meteoric growth rate (and an upcoming tour spanning 3 countries and 14 cities) it seems like another aeon. And while the sample was channeled through Hip Hop, “Stand Up” is irrefutably big, bouncy Electro House — a poster-child song for the Sahara Tent or any main stage this spring.
The EP will also feature 3 remixes from a varied group of artists including Destructo, DallasK, and the very exciting budding duo, Milo & Otis. Preview all 3 of those over on Henry’s Soundcloud.
