Citizen Kain – About
In this case, the simple idea Citizen Kaid had was to take vocal samples saying "it's all about the music" and "house", then chop and loop 'em up over a no-nonsense, heads-down club chugger of a backing, notable mostly for its looping bassline and stabs that sound like a digitally distorted trumpet. And it works, big time – it's hard to imagine any halfway-decent club floor not rockin' to this.
Label boss DJ Fresh supplies a rerub on the flip that's essentially the same but with slightly busier, more techno-y percussion, some extra rising synths and a breakdown in the middle. Either's good*.
It is, indeed, all about house.
About: As I just said "label owner DJ Fresh," you've surely already twigged that this comes on French label Freshin Records. They're on Soundbook and Cloudface, don't you know?
*If REALLY pushed I'll go for the sparser, housier original but like I said, either's good.
