Merging the old school with the next generation, Justin Prime and Vito Mendez is a combination to pay attention to.
Justin, a name known for platinum-scoring hits including Cannonball and remixing the likes of Swedish House Mafia, Tiesto and Jenifer Lopez, Vito has swiftly become one-to-watch for 2019 as his sets across Ushuaia Ibiza, Tomorrowland and Sunburn India having crowds in the palm of his hand; make no mistake, these two Dutchmen are ready to fly.
As the rudeboy vocals spit out “Ragamuffin selecta!”, the track takes a decidedly bombastic reggae vibe, implementing horn-driven melodies that make you feel like you should be on a beach in the Caribbean, before a big-room electro and jump-up energy intensifies. A grooving bassline come the second half of the anthem brings in booming low notes that rumble, as the soundsystem influence is felt more than ever.
As Justin Prime takes a different stance than his previous work and Vito Mendez has certainly come along way since his first ever solo release on Generation Smash late last year, the pairing pack an unstoppable punch on “Tear Dem Down” and accomplish exactly what it says on the tin.
