Jody Vukas – I See You Now is the latest seductive House music gem from the American artist and producer. Cutting his teeth on the ‘90s House scene, Vukas has previously played at venues including Level, Groovejet and Vinyl NYC, and alongside names like Eddie Amador and Danny Tenaglia. He later became the frontman of labels Distant Drum Recordings and Big House Music, whilst continuing to carve out a successful solo career for himself, pioneering a multifaceted sound that he refers to as “Tribal edged House, Tech House and Techno”.
Nowadays he is particularly prolific when it comes to releasing singles, having released numerous in 2023 after a gap of around four years. Jody Vukas – I See You Now is one of these recent singles, and along with its eye-catching cover art (which depicts a sparkling blue mask decorated with feathers), it has also no doubt caught the attention of fans with its sultry and alluring sound. The main focus of the track is the female vocal part, with lyrics like “I’ve learnt my lesson / won’t take no messin’” ringing out across bubbling synths and tribal rhythms. Also notable are the synth riffs that link the different vocal sections together, which are clean and memorable and as such elevate the track from merely a House-influenced song to one that is sure to go down well in the clubs that Vukas frequents as a performer.
Jody Vukas – I See You Now might be about the harsh realisation of finding out what someone is really like, but its slick melodies and steadfast, danceable rhythms ensure that anyone who listens to the track will feel an instant energy boost. The sweet but sultry delivery of the female vocal is also a huge part of the track’s appeal, and will no doubt result in listeners old and new finding themselves on the lookout for other tracks featuring this singer, and indeed other tracks by Jody Vukas himself.
