Its not often that I’ll hear something on the radio that immediately makes me want to do an instant review, if you’ve been coming here for any length of time then you’ll be aware of how it goes. I get sent stuff, it either riles me or pleases me and there is seldom any middle ground. All too often, its the former.
I heard something on the radio the other night however that definitely fell into the latter camp. Clare Macquire’s track ‘Ain’t Nobody’ (no, not that track..this is new) makes a defined and concerted grab for your attention. Check out the Breakage remix which frames the vocal in a spacious and dark setting. Wonderfully done, the vocal and music compliment each other perfectly and I can think of few mixes this year that have garnered my repeat attention like this.
