With what might turn out to be one of the biggest tracks of the year, the massive 'What I Might Do' by Ben Pearce is here. Solomun, Seth Troxler, David August and Jamie Jones are all already on board with championing this slick combination of raspy soulful vocals and irresistible grooving deep house
Up first is the original club mix which builds gradually with stripped back percussion, vocal murmurs and airy synths drifting in and out the mix. After a baseline is teased in a couple of times adding to the climax, the super soulful vocal is let rip to dramatic effect, a guaranteed weapon in any DJ´s bag in the coming months.
Harry Wolfman injects a bit of the old school into the original with a more jackin´, housed up version characterised by lazy sub bass, shuffly highs and a postmodern organ line which has become so synonymous within the new house sound prevalent in the UK scene at present.
One Records boss Adam Shelton takes things a bit deeper with his interpretation. A dark kick, clave and snare pattern drive the rhythm section throughout whilst deep pads and piano chords juxtapose to create a really emotive piece, subsequently giving the vocal a new meaning.
Last but certainly not least, one half of PBR Streetgang, Bonar Bradberryrounds things off with a cut aimed straight for the dancefloor with its driving low end and distorted tom-line. Creative use of the vocal and an ever evolving acid line work wonderfully together and give the track real drive and purpose.
