Kaytranada (formerly Kaytradamus) has resurrected a classic 2000 hit by French duo Modjo with his interpretation of their song ‘Lady (Hear Me Tonight)’.
The song was already bouncing but the talented young Canadian has added more bounce and more funk to the mix. To begin with he’s introduced a snare-clap combo that wouldn’t be to alien in an MJ track before introducing a honky two-chord rhythm, and then using significant delay and reverb on the vocals to add depth and expression. When the song is in full flow the kicks hit hard, the bass line thumps in your head and the synths are rhythmic and soulful however the song always maintains the swing and melody that made the original such a hit.
Another great track from one of my favourite up-and-comers.
