SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): Robin Thicke – “Give It 2 U” (Sander Kleinenberg Remix)
Following up the official song of the summer “Blurred Lines,” Robin Thicke moves from the Marvin Gaye “inspired” sound to a more modern, electro synthpop groove while keeping the trademark rapey- oops, lothario- lyrics in place. This time around, rather than waiting for bootleg mixes, club DJs can jump on Beatport and grab a banging electro mix by none other than Dutch producer/DJ Sander Kleinenberg. Returning from a bit of an absence, Sander ups the tempo, keeps the synth vibe, and dirties it up with some glitch and sick studio tricks. Yes, it’s still a mainstream-leaning remix, but his rework makes it cool enough for the big room DJs to play as well.
