SONG OF THE DAY: Ken Loi ft Zashanell – “All It Takes”
Australian born DJ/Producer Ken Loi has been rising in notoriety with solid remixes (Ting TIngs “Hands,” Martin Solveig “Hello”), big name support (Tiesto dubbed him Breakthrough DJ/Producer of 2011) and his special “bootups” which are DJ friendly mashups. “All It Takes,” his first single on Tiesto’s label Musical Freedom, starts of subtle and gradually increases in intensity. The electro/progressive house track then drops down to the heart-felt vocals of Miami-based vocalist Zashanell (last heard on the GTA track “U & I”) and crescendoes to a massive hands-in-the-air big room monster. The strong hooks, dynamic mood changes, and vocal chants makes “All It Takes” a summer club track with the potential to become a club favorite. With a great track like this, maybe its time for Ken to quite his day job as an EMT and resuscitate dance floors around the world instead.
