The lines between progressive and pop continue to erode as producers are working with singer/songwriters to add quality vocals. Australian duo Denzal Park have straddled the line, remixing both commercial vocal artists (Kylie, Zoe Badwi, Wynter Gordon) and club-oriented producers (MYNC, EDC, and Rank 1). Listening to “Look Back,” you can hear the influences of both styles. The straightahead progressive/stadium house track is elevated by the vocals of Eyelar (winner of the Dutch version of The Voice). It might take a few listens, but the melody will definitely grow on you. “Look Back” is one of those songs that will sound as good on the radio as it does in the club.
