Bit surprising that this comes from the same guy as Midnight Request Line, but hey, I'm not one to say that one person should stick to one kind of music only. There's no denying that this is some proper accessible dancefloor material and I didn't check, but I imagine it's already over the entire internet by now just because of that.
Personally I'm not a big fan of A*M*E's vocals, but in Skream's setting they remind me of The Jets - Crush On You (which I think is a reference that should be used more often by musicians) so in this case it's totally fine by me. It's flat out retro, like it came straight out of 1987, it's nothing modern or innovating, but when it's done well, it's just good music and that should be the important thing, right?
Skream's remix clearly is quite light-hearted while Duke Dumont's original breathes a 'HOUSE MUSIC IS SERIOUS BUSINESS'- atmosphere. Two tracks for two completely different occasions, but both will do the job in the according situation.
Out March 31st (with a remix by Waze & Odyssey as well), pre-order it here.
