Deep bassline, percussive loops – “Forever” by Vandalism, Tommie Sunshine and Disco Fries
The release of “Forever” on November 21st, 2016, is the result of a great collaboration: Australian music duo Vandalism, US legend Tommie Sunshine and Disco Fries have come together to record a proper House track. Based on the classic piano riff used in Rare Pleasure’s “Let Me Down Easy” – which was popularised by David Morales’ 1998 release “Needin’ U” – the track offers a deep bassline, percussive loops and great vocals. “We always loved David Morales’ ‘Needin’ U'”, say Vandalism, “but not many people know that it’s actually a sample from Rare Pleasure. Anyway, we really wanted to make a new interpretation of that track.”
As Vandalism really wanted a “catchy and quirky male vocal”, they asked Tommie Sunshine to collaborate with them. The track was recorded in Melbourne and New Yok City: “We sent the logic files back and forth, and the vocals were recorded in New York.” The release contains the original track as well as five remixes. Dutch music producer Bojac wanted to create a somehow techy remix, Andy Van made a V8 remix, Color Castle from Sydney made a Dub version suitable for a deep floor, LA Riots produced a heavy bass remix and Chris Ramos rounds out the release with his very tough version of “Forever”. The whole collection will be released by Vicious Recordings in mid-November.
