Boat Rockin'

Posted on the 09 November 2011 by Pelski
Boat Rockin'What with all the deep house and disco this blog's become immersed in, I thought I'd post a couple of tunes on the dubstep / garage side of things:
The late great Aaliyah was killed in an airplane crash in The Bahamas after filming the music video for single 'Rock the Boat'. The track has been remixed aplenty (the Soul Clap edit is a personal favourite), but it's easy to forget the original carries a lot of dancefloor weight in itself. The vocal as well as the gently clicking instrumentation wouldn't seem all that out of place in a lot of deep house, r'n'b-loving mixes in vogue in 2011. Ill Blu, on the other hand, speeds things up with some uk funky percussion:

Some skippy beats skim over Madcon's sooothing cover of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons' seminal 'Beggin' . It's a super smooth ride chopped into an amalgam of fragmented vocal snippets, all the while remaining coherent and, crucially, retaining the soulfulness of the source material:

I've been keeping an eye on Maribou State for some time. Their music is of the ilk easily pidgeonholed as 'future garage', but that label doesn't do justice to their intriguing and often inventive productions. On their remix of Wretch 32, a cut up r'n'b vocal swirls amidst a thrum of hollowed out percussion:
