SONG OF THE DAY: Fedde Le Grand – Twisted

fedde-le-grand-twisted

No stranger to big festival anthems (“Don’t Give Up,” “No Good,” “Raw“), Dutchman Fedde Le Grand is about to unleash a new one called “Twisted.” What makes the big room electro track live up to its title? The intro is completely unexpected, starting with a funky guitar hook that sounds like it was lifted from an old Doobie Brothers track (maybe “Long Train Running”) which gets more aggressive and electro as it builds. Then come the male vocals which sound like Green Velvet (channelling Stewart Who) repeating an irresistible verse. The drop and buildup are everything you would expect from a track like this, but it’s the effects and the increasing power in the vocals that elevate the track to a higher level. While some may compare the lyrical content to “Wasted” (Tiesto’s paean to alcoholism), “Twisted” is simultaneously more playful and darker. It isn’t clear whether “Twisted” is referring to a crazy person, someone uninhibited by the music, or the darker side of drug culture. When a track isn’t overly explicit, it allows the listener to make their own interpretation. Though in reality, most ragers will just be jumping up and down to the beat for the entire track, which of course is “Twisted” enough in itself. As usual, Danny Howard of BBC Radio gets the coolest new tracks first.
