Kismet and guilty pleasures seem to go together. I was watching America’s Next Top Model last weekend, and the models were challenged to walk on revolving wheels shaped like turntables. Spinning the decks was no other than Caroline D’Amore. Since “The Music Man,” her vivacious collaboration with Stonebridge has been in my clubsets all year, I clicked over to Beatport and was delighted to find a new single from the modelicious twosome called “Live Life.” The blend of sexy, classy house (Stonebridge’s lineage) with modern electro is a little more subdued than the jaunty and playful “Music Man,” and the lyrics have an uplifting message about working towards a brighter day when things get rough. The inspirational song feels like Lady Gaga’s “Edge of Glory” run through the questioning filter of Avicii’s “Wake Me Up.” While it might not be an immediate floorfiller for big room club jocks, there’s quite a special message that a lot of club kids will latch onto. It’s a song that grows with every listen.
