Arguably one of the strongest vocal house songs to come out of the last ten years of fine underground music, ‘Chasing’ delivers with a no-nonsense attack. The original, produced by South African super duo ‘C.9ine’ is an incredible barrage of driving, sexy afro house rhythms coupled seamlessly with well thought out bass bumps & evocative key lines, and this is just the music! Once we get going on the vocals this song is unstoppable. Kholi, hailing from Soweto just south of Johannesburg City has jumped into center stage with what we can only describe as a flawless vocal delivery, sexy & forceful Kholi gets her point across with no holds barred.
On this, the first half of a two-part release, remixer’s Atjazz and the awesome Alain Ho (DJ Yellow) step out in different directions. Both hit the floor hard. Atjazz slides in with sensual & lush chords layered with his trademark subby bass pops, before he lets go into a technical DJs dream-drop, where the mid section becomes open to all sorts of turntable trickery, before we’re lifted off the ground once more as if it were Christmas and the final snare fill drops the song back on track. Alain Ho and his precise remix delivery is like the perfect glass of fine wine, slowly building and then driving the higher tones out towards the second half with wonderful clarity, this kind of sound quality can only be reached by someone with his amount of experience in the studio.
Chasing is set to be one of the biggest deep summer anthems of 2011. If you don’t get it, you’re just not cool!
