SONG OF THE DAY: HIIO ft Max C – “I’ll Be There”

South American duo HIIO has been making the rounds enlisting some of clubland’s finest vocalists (Abigail Bailey, Terri B, Giuseppe Viola, Lauren Rose) to sing on the tracks they’ve released this year.  For their fifth single “I’ll Be There,” they’ve brought in gospel house singer Max C (recently heard on the phenomenal “Ordinary People” with Sultan + Ned Shepard). Actually, “Ordinary People” and “I’ll Be There” share similar DNA – uplifting gospel with soulful house vocals over electro/stadium production.  There’s a classic vibe to Max C’s voice and it feels like it could have been taken from one of Strictly Rhythm’s hallmark ’90s vocal records.  The remixes are strong across the board with Muzzaik and Hoxton Whores both contributing swing-influenced house-vibed takes and John Jacobsen going in a slightly harder tribal direction.
