Rhythm Code "Sing"

Out Now on Nascent Recordings

Asher Jones and Neil Barber of Rhythm Code have been pumping out a consistent list of tunes over the years, and some of those tunes have stood out over others. Personally I feel that "Sing" is one of their stronger efforts to date, boasting a soulful vocal over some fresh sounding house grooves. Nascent should certainly be proud to have this as part of their discography.

The Original Mix melds a sexy combination of funk-influenced groove and smooth house beats. A beautiful soul-tinged vocal makes its entry, and works itself into the composition perfectly, feeling right at home amongst the other elements. The overall vibe the track carries is positive, and works wonders on moving a crowd. The ladies certainly seem to love this one on those hot summer nights!

Rene Amesz steps up to provide his trademark dirty twist on "Sing". The bassline chugs forward, and an entirely new feel is set up. The vocal is sliced and twisted, then re-sampled over the top. The dirty groove is one we could certainly expect from Amesz, but for me it didn't come with the edge which caught my eye in the Original Mix.

Any house fans would be terribly foolish to ignore this release, as the Original Mix is guaranteed to drive your crowds insane, if that's the style they dig. Has certainly been a favourite in my box over the last few weeks, and whilst the Rene Amesz Mix didn't do a lot for me, it provides a nice alternative for those looking for a slight shift in mood.
