SONG OF THE DAY: Patrick Hagenaar – Come Closer

Yeah, I’ve been on the Hagenaar train for a while – going back to his work with Albrecht up through his solo tracks like “You Got Me Glowing (In The Dark).” 2014 is shaping up to be his big year with two brilliant releases on his own Colour Code label (“Tears of Gold” and “Stars”) and remixes for Kylie Minogue, Route 94, Kiesza, and Second City that appeal to both underground and commercial DJs. “Come Closer (Not Too Close)” might be the one that crosses him over. The progressive house track has a euphoric pop feel and effected rave-like vocals repeating “Come Closer” and “Feel For You.” It’s easy to sing along to and perfectly appropriate for making a first move on someone you are dancing near in a big room. All of the big guys are behind this track and with the anthemic keyboard line it could work its way onto commercial radio. If Patrick Hagenaar isn’t already on your “ones to watch” list, here is the exploding beacon to finally get your attention.
