Tensnake Remixes ALOE BLACC ‘I Need A Dollar’ review

Aloe Blacc’s ‘I Need A Dollar’ gets the Tensnake treatment as the Hamburg disco don lends his magical touch to the soul-inspired original (below), turning into a sure-fire dancefloor weapon. The teaser up on soundcloud (above) has already attracted nearly 11000 plays in 6 days, clear evidence of his man-of-the-moment status, and he doesn’t disappoint on the latest offering with a solid, chugging groove complimented by Blacc’s soulful vocals. One can’t help but draw comparisons with early New York and Chicago sounds, quite obviously an influence on Mr Niemerski’s work.  With attention recently being paid by The Guardian and the imminent re-release of Coma Cat on Defected about to launch him into the general public consciousness, it’s nice to hear that Tensnake is still having fun and keeping the boogie alive.

Due out towards the end of September.
