Sam Sparro – ‘Happiness (The Magician Remix)’
After a four year wait since his self-titled debut, Sam Sparro is back and releasing his latest effort to legions of eager fans. The ‘Black and Gold’ singer’s lead track, ‘Happiness’ is an anthem in its own right, with lyrics that are expectedly optimistic and utterly empowering. The chorus achieves epic proportions when the remix production is handed over to the ever popular master producer Magician, thereby bringing the track to a whole new, feel-good, level.
Perseus – ‘Love in Zanzibar’
Perseus manages to adhere to his very particular tropical-flavored house music style that blends steel drums melodies, and lazy beats with sample vocals by well known R&B artists like Mary J. Blige who is featured on ‘Love in Zanzibar.’ Perseus perfectly blends all these elements to create a languid, lounge-like, tropical disco vibe as Blige’s soulful vocals beg: “who can love you better?”
Niki & The Dove – ‘Mother Protect (Goldroom Remix)’
The Swedish electropop duo known as Niki & The Dove are ready to make a big impact this year with their debut album, Instinct. The lead single, ‘Mother Protect,’ has been given the Goldroom treatment which results in turning the originally dark song into a veritable disco house anthem which appropiately complements the already haunting chorus.
Little Boots – ‘Every Night I Say A Prayer (Tensnake Remix)’
When Little Boots announced she was going team up with producer Andy Butler (from NY nu-house act Hercules And Love Affair) on her latest track, ‘Every Night I Say a Prayer,’ we knew it was a collaboration that should not be missed. As if that wasn’t enough, Tensnake added another layer with his remix which brings the house entrenched original track to more of a dance oriented vibe reminiscent of the 80s.
