SONG OF THE DAY: Joan Reyes & Victor Magan ft Moises Modesto – “Heart of Glass”

Part of following clubland is keeping an eye on music from around the world.  Starting to buzz in Spain is this new vocal houser from Spanish DJ/Producers Joan Reyes and Victor Magan.  The song caught my eye for two reasons – first because of how great Joan’s track with Amba Shepherd, “Perfect Crime,” was and and secondly, the thought of how cool a male vocal cover of a Blondie track would be.  To my very happy surprise, it’s an original song written by singer Moises Modesto with a fully-realized verse and chorus (a rarity these days in EDM records) over a track which blends a melodic piano drop with tough, but not obnoxiously aggressive electro production in the chorus.  The only ’80s/cover vibe comes from a synth line that bears a striking resemblance to Bronski Beat “Smalltown Boy” (or September “Cry For You” for those too young to remember the original). “Heart of Glass” is a solid vocal club track that could easily find its way into crossing over to radio.
