Time for quick change of pace. I’m kind of all over the place when it comes to music, and just as much as I love my downtempo, I have an affair with catchy dance music. How can you not? With EDM (ew, gross, I hate that term) currently making waves in the mainstream scene, there’s an incessant demand for artists to release tracks on the fly to satisfy the needs of the masses.
I have no resentment, honestly.
A-Trak is one of my all-time favorites – how could he not be? He won world championships for turntabalism at 15, started his own label before he hit 30, and is one of the funniest people you can follow on Twitter. He’s got mad wit.
Just over two weeks ago (15 days if you’re anal about it) A-Trak and Dillon Francis released their collaborated single, Money Makin’, and golly gee, is it a great summer anthem. It’s gracing most of my playlists as of late, and I play it at every party I’m made to be the last-minute, you-have-a-Zune DJ. No haterade sippin’ here.
It may be redundant, but out of formalities I’ll just say it: this single is as catchy as your dog Sparky catching a fly ball. That makes no sense, but neither do Dillon Francis and A-Trak, and that works perfectly for this song. I want to blast it from every rooftop, poolside party, yacht deck, and street corner possible. The synths, drumlines, catchy-ass vocals, and even music video are quirky enough to keep you interested. Constant surprises, you know?
Still on repeat. ‘Nuff said.
