Now this is what I wish house music was like. None of that standard Kaskade nonsense that borders on monotonous, and somehow a deep bass that catches your eye but doesn’t sound like
noise dubstep. San Francisco based DJ Panic City is top-shelf talent, and more than most, he understands what’s worth listening to. He’s prolific, too. Here’s his latest release, a remix of Drake and Rihanna’s excellent “Take Care.” What I like most about this is it turns it into a seriously party-friendly song. And.. yes, that may not seem so hard to do, considering the ease of making four-note bass lines and adding in a couple synth tracks, but it’s the quality that sets the good ones apart. (Thanks to Mixtape Maestro for the heads up.)
There have been a lot of takes on College and Electric Youth’s “A Real Hero” ever since the Drive soundtrack came out (yes, we fell for them too). Most of them aren’t any good – most likely because the original was so awesome. This one is one of the few truly quality ones out there.
And here are a couple undiscovered Panic City gems. Enjoy.
