Dennis Cruz continues his standout run-of-form in 2021 with the release of his latest single, What U Doing. Soon-to-appear on his forthcoming album, Roots, the single is a collaboration with UK singer-songwritwer Leo Wood and includes a remix by iconic German house producer Mousse T.

“It’s always a pleasure to collaborate with Leo, she has such an amazing voice. ‘What U Doing’ is the second track we’ve done together, with this one a little more paired back and dubby, featuring rolling drums and the bright stabs. Mousse T’s remix brings a housey vibe with the rich piano melodies to offer a really cool take… I love it.”Dennis Cruz

Two worlds come together in perfect harmony, as the five-minute number gets underway with shimmering bell chimes and Leo’s soothing vocal offerings. Dennis’ influence soon arrives, taking the form of a punchy, four-four bassline whilst echoing synths purr intermittently in the background. Mousse T’s ‘Deep Shizzle’ Extended Remix brings things to a feel-good close, with upbeat piano rolls residing atop euphoric chords to create a dancefloor cut that you can’t help but smile to.

MÜSE co-founder Dennis Cruz has cemented his reputation as one of global dance music’s most-esteemed talents, picking up a plethora of awards and nominations throughout his career, including Beatport, RA, Vicious Magazine, and DJ Awards: Best Tech House 2018, Best Deep Tech 2019 and winner of Best Producer in 2017. Bristolian talent Leo Wood is swiftly becoming a leading vocalist within the scene, traversing drum and bass and tech with ease and featuring on releases by Hospitality, Shogun Audio and Defected to name a few. German house hero Mousse T created some of house’s most-lauded tracks in the late nineties to noughties, whilst in recent times his remixes of Selace, Camelphat, Moloko, Mike Dunn and Wankelmut have been met with widespread industry acclaim.
