Shawnee Taylor’s magnificent voice has thrilled me several times in recent years with tracks like Live Your Life and Where You Are, both arriving on the scene courtesy of the Erick Morillo-fronted Subliminal Records. Erick and crew use Shawnee often in their own productions, so it’s not surprising that Shawnee invited Erick’s newly formed trio with Harry ”Choo Choo” Romero and Jose Nunez, Sympho Nympho, along for the ride on her own original, Colors. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the original mix, but leave it to master of booty-shaking house Antranig to remix this track completely out of the park.
Antranig’s remix of Colors is a bit more big room than his other recent hits, but no less fantastic. Percolating basslines, grandiose chord stabs, and a tribal tinge in the drop are the hallmarks of this instant floor destroyer, all lined with soaring vocals and pitch-perfect harmonies by Shawnee. May the original rest in peace. I’m dropping this in my next set. Twice.
