Sasse ft. Big Bully
Took My Love
My Favorite Robot Records
If one of your rules is "no sex in the champagne room," don't play this one anywhere near the bubbly. My Favorite Robot Records continues its onslaught of uptempo deep house with this scorcher from Sasse entitled "Took My Love." Featuring the vocals of Big Bully, this tune is a fever pitch romper, and the remixes contained in the package offer substantial variety.
The founder of acclaimed imprint Moodmusic, Sasse's production history spans decades and genres, but has remained steadfastly deep and quirky. The original, "Took My Love," is replete with breathless vocals, a sleazy baseline, and atmospheric stabs in between. It takes cues from the bygone era of disco, and, like several of MFRR's most popular releases, twists and turns these into a modern dance floor smash. The incessant stabs and snappy hats keep the tune driving and dancers on the floor. Enjoy the menage of old school and new school sounds on this one, along with the instrumental.
James What takes the tune into darker and more sinister territories. Making minimal use of the vocal, he crafts a late night tech house groover that moves confidently. Odd hits and stabs reverberate across the face of this remix, all building to a powerful climax around the four minute mark. This one builds and energizes without the niceties or overt dancefloor appeal of the original. Incidently, What is a producer to watch out for, with solid outings on Crosstown Rebels and Poker Flat, and a collaboration with Damian Lazarus under the moniker "Zod."
Sasse's Detroit Mix brings the snares and cowbells back for a detroit-techno inspired re-rub. The sexiness of the original is retained but this one feels raw and dirty like the Motor City it's named after. Big pads blare through the mix and the vocal sounds more transparent than in the original. The bass line bubbles and dances throughout the track. A unique piece of music, this mix is well crafted and adds great diversity to the package.
This tune will make heads turn. It features cool ideas with a retro tinge, exceptional vocals, and solid production quality across three mixes. Get it here
