It’s been fun watching the career of LED robot party DJ Kryoman unroll over the past few months. His musical output has included a vulgar party record (“Crowdfuker”), a collab with Paris Hilton (“Good Time”), and an update of a classic Italian folk song (“Tarantella”). For “Losing All Control,” the illuminated character teams up with Chicago-based producer Paul Anthony to create a party ready electro track with a progressive-ish breakdown. Playboy playmate Paige Young contributes the pretty vocal performance with lyrics perfect for pop singalong. While the song could easily be dismissed as a mashup of recent and retro hits by Afrojack, Deorro, and LMFAO, it is quite solid on its own and would easily work in a commercial club setting. If you are a fan of Paige Young, you should check out her “acoustic” cover of Mr Probz “Waves.”
If the title “Tarantella” doesn’t ring a bell, as soon as you hear the hook you will recognize it. The Tarantella is a classic Italian folk dance that’s been used many times over the years in everything from movie soundtracks to commercials. Recently, Italian producer Chicco Secci did a dreamy take back in 2010. On the opposite side of the spectrum, hardcore party rocker Kryoman and Carlo Astuti amp up the energy and take it full-on hard electro, sounding like a cross between R3hab and Martin Garrix. There is definitely a novelty feel to this track and it will most likely end up being featured on the next edition of Dance Dance Revolution or WiiFit. e.
