SONG OF THE DAY: Cahill & Kimberley Locke – “Feel the Love”
verse and chorus sung by a truly talented singer. In the mold of “When Love Takes Over” by David Guetta and Kelly Rowland and “Love’s Got a Hold On Me” by Frenchie Davis, “Feel the Love” is an emotional and uplifting dance record with a pop feel and enough edge to command attention on a commercial dance floor. The song is full of energy without resorting to aggressive electro or cliched old school NRG (not that there is anything wrong with either extreme). Cahill’s production is near perfection, not a surprise considering their consistent track record as remixers, with a real depth of transitions as the song progresses. Kimberley Locke is an amazing vocalist, as anyone who has seen her perform live can attest to, and in the hands of Cahill she expresses both power and beauty with a truly multilayered performance. It doesn’t hurt that the song is fully-realized and well-written with a universal message. Just as Cahill tends to work on multiple singles by artists (Agnes, Cascada, Nicole Scherzinger), let’s hope this is just the first of many collaborations by these two gifted entities.
