SONG OF THE DAY: Carlos Mojica ft Asherah – “Take A Look”

Classic freestyle label Tazmania Records has modernized itself for 2013, finding EDM songs, like Sophia May’s “Anywhere With You” that work both in the clubs and on dance radio. Their new release by Chicago residents Carlos Mojica and Asherah, “Take A Look,” is another strong contender. Blending eurodance and electro, the production features a hooky synth line that builds in intensity from the emotional intro to the banging chorus. Asherah’s expressive vocal performance is quite strong, raw enough to convey the tone of the lyrics yet polished enough to fit the sound of the progressive stadium track. Dark Intensity’s mix contributes a New York-styled spin on the Dirty Dutch sound, combining aggression and big room sounds. Dutch producer Jesse Voorn’s take is notable for his blending of stadium house, harder sounds, and classic Hi-NRG for a nearly universal sound that would work for big room DJs as well as pop radio. If you haven’t heard of Jesse Voorn, check out some of his productions (“Closer,” “Seeme,” and “Magic is All Around”) and his recent mix of Jessica Sutta’s “Again.”
