SONGS OF THE DAY: Dada Life vs Josh Wink – “Higher State of Dada Land” and Tocadisco ft Roland Clark “Phoenix”

This week is turning into ‘let’s relive the ’90s’ (then again, hasn’t that been the main story all year?).    The Dada Life retool of Josh Wink’s acid classic “Higher State of Consciousness” has been making the festival rounds all summer with massive support from Hardwell.  The update is basically a faithful replay of the original, with a little bit more electro and the word “Consciousness” replaced by “Dada Land.”  Yes, it works, and is available on the World AIDS Day fundraising compilation Dance (Red) Save Lives 2 which also has big club favorites by Chuckie, Martin Solveig, Major Lazer and deadmau5, and Calvin Harris.  For another exploration of ’90s acid, check out Tocadisco’s new track “Phoenix.”  Featuring vocals from Roland Clark, who has worked with everyone from Armand Van Helden and Roger Sanchez to Todd Terry and Fatboy Slim, it is an iteration of the “Higher State” acid sound with a similar loop on top of a more shuffling, bouncy house production.  Instead of the classic-yet-cracked-out overly-effected vocals from HIgher State, Roland sounds more like the voice of God commanding you to feel the music deep in his soul.   Together with “Hold That Sucker Down,” and the two recent Max C records (“I’ll Be There” and “Ordinary People”), “Phoenix” would make a great climax for a cathartic and epic religious mini-set on just about any club night.
