The Weekly Froth! A weekly take on six tracks, most of which have recently popped up somewhere in the blogosphere. Bit of a mixed bag with a slight leaning towards house, disco, and remixes, but generally just anything that for some reason tickled the writer’s fancy.
Track of the week: ‘Changes’ by Crazy P (Mario Basanov remix)
I like the start with the heavy bass and what I think are strings actually. Really puts the mood in place. After that the beat comes in to make sure it is going to work on the dancefloor as well. I don’t know Crazy P, but I like the vocals, and they go with that softer mood from the start. Not that the vocals are fragile mind you, they have enough spunk in them. Love what happens around the two minute mark, that really makes it friendly for the dancefloor as well. The song keeps on rolling, very smooth, and when there is a change-up it really is kind of undercover, but it sure will get the dancers in motion. I would fall for it anyway. The slow down at 4:20 is nice, though I would’ve doubled the vocal repetition, but I’m a sucker for vocals so yeah. One can argue that the build-up after the 4:30 mark is a tad timid, but who cares, Basanov really delivers a stellar and lovely remix, even if the end isn’t all aces and strikes.
