Last time I posted something about Adventure Club, I didn’t have the nicest things to say. Guess what? I STILL DON’T! Ha! If you want to read all about what I had to say, you can do so here, but to sum it up I basically said that they sold out, they changed their sound to something that sucks, they suck as live DJ’s and I was really disappointed because I used to be a big fan. In that post, I basically broke down all their new mediocre songs and said of “Need Your Heart”, and I quote, “If they got rid of that fucking annoying bleeping, it might’ve been pretty good.” Well, someone was listening and, surprise surprise, I was right. Cry Wolf called in Victor Wooten or something on this one because the bassline is absolutely insane. Then it gets into a funky glitchy frenzy which just made my shoulders start to shake. And Kai’s vocals are really quite nice without all the bleeping. YOLO!
Protohype‘s take isn’t bad either if you’re looking for something a little heavier and with Rick Ross heaving samples. Take your pick, they’re both better than the original.
P.S. All that being said, I did think “Retro City” was kind of good…
UPDATE: Candyland also just dropped a great remix, which complements these two by being on the lighter, more melodic side. I’m not sure if I would describe it as “nu-disco” as it’s advertised but it’s Madeon-ish which goes for miles in my book. Thanks to Johnny Quigley for the heads-up.
