SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): Radio Killer, Francesco Diaz & Young Rebels – “Clothes Off”
Imagine if Arty was doing a progressive track based on an interpolation of LaTour’s “Blue” and Kim Carnes “Bette Davis Eyes.” Aside from a slightly over-accentuated kick drum, the first minute sounds like a big room prog track that any superstar DJ might drop in their set. Then, the vocals come in and you realize its a girly ’80s pop cover in disguise. Romanian pop stars Radio Killer created this saccharine, sweet confection with the vocal assistance of Lee Heart. Are these raw vocals full of emotional power? Well, of course not, it’s a europop song from Romania where autotune is as prevalent as oxygen. Is it a fun take on Jermaine Stewart’s ’80s classic… Of course it is. Each remix channels a different big name remixer – Afrojack (Francesco Diaz & Young Rebels), Avicii (Ton Dyson), Prok Fitch (Jeff Rock), Zedd (Fuzzy Hair & Massimo Santucci), and Otto Knows (Frankox). Overall a fun set of mixes seemingly made for Sunday Funday!
