Danism + Train join forces with DJ Rae for Strictly Rhythm
The trio Danism + Train team up with the multi-talented DJ Rae to drop a reworking of the seminal electronic tune White Horse which comes in two mixes, a vocal mix and a dub. There is also a Radio Mix but depending where you download it from you may or may not get it!
First up is the Vocal Mix, which starts with a shuffling drum pattern, then brings in idiosyncratic synth sounds, an electro bassline and some organ work. These elements build up nicely to Rae’s well executed vocal, which is whispered and sultry and fits well with the track's quirky nature. Then you have the Bass Dub, which starts with a single word sung by Rae that has added echo, around which the track then builds with the bassline driving it forward. There's a lot of panning of sounds which sounds great, the organ sound keeps coming in to add slabs of sound and the whole mix sounds very good. There's quite a lot of vocals used considering it's a dub, but it's not a problem as the track sounds great anyway.
I don’t have a favourite mix here as they're all very nice and this tune should do some dancefloor damage whichever mix you play. What I do recommend is that you check it out as it's well worth a listen.
