David Vendetta Featuring Akram – Unidos Para La Musica

Not something I thought would mix well, but does so with surprising emotion. Haunting Arabic vocals over a deep electronica groove – who knew… The vocals carry so much pain and love they seep through the track.
The track starts off sounding rather Depeche Mode-ish, then vocals start wailing which sounds like Andy Bell (erasure fame), and then quickly turns into more of a Dead Can Dance Vibe. All the while propelling the dance rhythm further and further.

The Presets – Are You The One

Ok, so my guilty pleasure of the year is the tv show, “So You Think You Can Dance”.

For those of you that missed this gem of reality tv, it’s a dance show and competition similar to the premise of American Idol. Anyway, aside from being a fun and addicting show every once in a while I’ll hear a track they use for a dance routine that just blows me away. The Presets – Are You The One is such a track. This electro/rock tune by the Australian Presets has a very sleazy feel (think soft cell esque meets LCD Soundsystems) and hand claps… I just love me some Hand Claps…

so here it is: The Presets – Are You The One
