Sometimes, simple is best. A melody, a drum pattern, a vocal sample, and you’ve got a hit. The hard part is getting the right melody, the right drum pattern, and the right vocal sample. Blinkie’s new song “Take Control” has each and it’s a smash hit.
There’s not much to say for this track given its intense simplicity. The drum pattern isn’t excessively complex, nor is the piano melody all too left field. The vocal sample, too, is a simple repetition of, “Take control, let it go.” And yet, the track is absolutely addictive. The deep bassline and the melody on top of it are wonderful candy for the ears. Even for a basshead like myself, I find myself immersed in the sound, wanting to dive back in again and again.
