SONG OF THE DAY: Kid Massive and DataBoy – Horizon
Two Texans meet up with up with a Brit to release a track on a label down under… Sounds more like a setup for a punchline than the start of a solid record. Following up their collab “Daylight” with WeSmile, producer Kid Massive teams again with singer/songwriter duo DataBoy for one of the strongest vocal tracks of recent memory. This may seem like a strange compliment, but Cam and Adam can actually sing and you can tell by the way they duet with three distinct levels of intensity – first the poppy Wanted/One Direction-ish verse, then the more uplifting and emotional pre-chorus/bridge into the full-on wailing of the chorus. It’s hard to gauge whether the track came first or the lyrics came first, but either way Kid Massive’s original stadium house/electro hybrid track is quite solid on its own, sounding like a mix of Swedish House Mafia and Zedd. Remix-wise, there’s a lot of buzz on Vinai and listening to his big room electro mix, it is easy to see why. DJs should also check out the shuffling Tradelove-ish remix by Alex Taylor and the more chilled-out take by Skyden & Piero.
