SONG OF THE DAY: DJ Cassidy ft Robin Thicke and Jessie J – “Calling All Hearts”

DJ Cassidy is a true superstar DJ.  He’s spun the biggest celebrity events for everyone from Beyonce & Jay Z and Naomi Campbell to  Oprah Winfrey and President Obama.  When deciding what kind of music he wanted to create for his solo debut album, he analyzed his favorite dance music and discovered that everything was released between 1978 and 1982.  To recreate that soulful disco sound, he reunited the actual original musicians and producers to create a modern take on the classic sounds.  The resulting music is unlike anything else out there right now.  This is run to the dance floor, happy, sing-along good time party music.  Songs that make you want to actually dance – not just jump and down and rage (not that there is anything wrong with that). The first single “Calling All Hearts,” co-written by Claude Kelly, brings in Robin Thicke and Jessie J who sound raw and real yet absolutely polished and perfect at the same time.  The hooks of “Calling All Hearts” are so catchy that it will be stuck in your head on first listen.   I had the honor of hearing a preview of the album at the Promo Only Summer Sessions last August, and as amazing as “Calling All Hearts” is, it might not even be the best song on the album.  If you are a fan of Daft Punk, Robin Thicke, Tensnake or any of the other modern interpretation of disco or NuHouse – you should definitely be listening to this.  After listening to the song, watch the making of clip which shows studio sessions with the vocalists and instrumentalists from Earth Wind & Fire, guitar work with Nile Rodgers, and horn and string arranger Jerry Hey (who worked on Michael Jackson’s classic albums).
