SONG OF THE DAY: Otto Knows – “A Million Voices” (US Release)
Kudos to Universal for bringing one of the year’s biggest club records to the US. Yes, it’s “A Million Voices” by Otto Knows, you know, the “eh eh eh ah ah ah” song. The Swedish producer, best known for his remixes of Dada Life and Imogen Heap, constructed an epic-feeling track, similar in energy to the Dario G classic “Sunchyme,” using the simple and repetitive effected vocal loop of “eh eh eh, ah ah ah.” Sometimes something so simple is the most effective and the track has been massive all summer. You might also know the track from a cheeky bootleg version of it mashed with Afrojack’s “Can’t Stop.” Originally released on Ingrosso’s credible Refune label back in February, the track has been picked up by Universal for US release, so expect a massive commercial push as the club hit goes pop. I have a feeling that this track will end up on a bunch of commercials and movie soundtracks – or at least based on the new video, become a theme song for recycling and underground raves.
