"Don't, don't, don't stop," suggests the hook in "Sinister," Todd Terry's latest track, released on Steve Aoki's Dim Mak label (of all places). The vocal hook on the nearly nine-minute cut is whispered like a subliminal message of encouragement as we take to the dancefloors to work our bodies for hours on end. According to Terry, "Sinister" is a prime example of where dance music in 2015 is going: "I think [house ] will be more musical and people will be getting back to the music that really makes them dance and groove… Everyone is coming back to the old-school."
Building upon skipping drums and an slowly unfolding synth melody, Terry's latest flexes his prowess as an all-night club conductor. Just remember when you're pushing your mind and body to the limit this weekend: it's a marathon, not a sprint.
