Sometimes I hear a track and just know which other track to mix it with it. When I listened to this week’s tune of the week ‘Wildfire’ for this first time, I just knew it needed to be blended with Aaliyah’s “If Your Girl Only Knew”. Hell I could practically hear Timbo’s voice from “Are You That Somebody” being sampled too. Close your ears and listen for ‘Baby Girl, better known as Aaliyah’ at the 42s mark. Tell me you don’t want that in your life.
SKTRKT’s Wildfire track eschews the same stripped down sex appeal.The slightly off kilter synth line playing doppelganger to the lazy guitar swing from Timbaland’s production. This was an easy selection for Tune Of The Week
SBTRKT WildFire feat Little Dragon is a sweaty, late night, up-close and personal grinder of a track, and I for one will be saddened if dancefloors don’t get exposed to this banger.
Fuck it, turn the lights down, get me a drank and let’s get a little sweaty to this one.
