WORDS BY IAN HOWLING
Vocal house music is proving to be as popular as ever in 2014, but much of it is old stuff simply rehashed for a new generation. All too often, present-day original vocal tracks seem to lack resonance; a real sense of feeling or emotion. Thankfully, this new single from SEARCH DIP bucks that trend with a slick, icy vocal line that really lodges in your brain.
Search DiP is a Romanian producer who clearly knows his chops. His production on “Forget You” is pleasingly dark and grainy and, most importantly, super catchy. His bassline is fat and his percussion sharp edged with the crystal clear vocals of Amy Lyon adding an effeminate touch. Three great remixes are also included and range from the horn laced and ravey by Mercury, to something gritty, melodic and deep from PAO and finally a garage inflected affair from Wonderklubb, and with it’s tough bass notes, slouchy drums and clipped vocal stabs it’s the remix stand out.
