Agent Orange – Feel This Way

Share

3516-211647_600.jpgLabel: CerecsScore: 7.5/10 

Cerecs boss Todd G has a knack for bringing in some pretty clued-in cats, and the latest bunch of party-starting anthems to come from the label is no different in that regard. This time, it’s the dab hand that is Agent Orange who takes to the stage, with Feel This Way a feel-good slice of tech-house that’ll positively decimate any floor it’s allowed to flex its muscle on.

Built around a shrewd and unmistakable sample of Outkast’s ‘Ms Jackson’, the original is a solid workout that’s far more than just a vocal. The rest of the track plays out brilliantly in that sense, as the producer ups the ante with some clever drum work and a classy mound of chords.

The aforementioned Todd G then turns in a deft remix that’s laced with acidic charms and nimble nuances aplenty. G manipulates the vocal less so than in the original, but it’s questionable even how necessary it is, as it’s most definitely the bassline that walks home with most of the plaudits here. Jason Brooks’ remix is a slow and steady, hallowed out slice of suspense-fueled action, before Shotdown’s take on matters is the sort of bouncing number that – in spite of taking some time to get going – will definitely have you on your toes by the middle stage. With 4 very different interpretations on show, Cerecs’ latest is a charming and eclectic listen from the outset. Good work, guys.

A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
