Max Sedgley - Something Special

I recently saw an ad for car insurance, or a bank, or Iceland, or something; anyway it had Happy on it. Which is surely proof of how broad-ranging the appeal of Sedgley's brand of still-just-about-credible dance-pop really is.

And so it is here. The original of Something Special is a slightly Jacksons-ish pop number with a female vocal from Tasita D'Amour; you want to call it cheesy, and it is a bit, but it's so flawlessly-crafted and uplifting (and that bass is so fat) that to do so would seem churlish.

For the clubs, meanwhile, you have remixes from Neighbour, Crazy P and Spiritcatcher. The latter's Dub is the place to head if you're looking for a properly housed-up take; Neighbour go kind of nu-disco meets breaks with the full vocal intact, while the Crazy P mix throws in a Blackbyrds-ish funk geetar break for something that's very move to-able, if a tad lightweight.

So yeah, it's all good really. Expect to be thoroughly sick of this by about July at the latest; for now, it's all good clean fun.

Out: Now

About: This is on Jalapeno, that bastion of all things new-old funk with a party twist. You want a website link I suppose? Here you go, then…
