Coloursound – Fly With Me
Picked up the vinyl for this little gem yesterday at Sister Ray‘s. Its since been on the loop all this morning. Suave dance-floor filler that carries the spirit of the infectious 1990s French house production. With inviting lyrics such as ‘Fly with me, to the sun, good vibrations everyone‘ the track echoes the positive vocal vibes of the 90’s decade musical output. Its romping nature meant it received enormous play-time in Ibiza, Miami and New Zealand just to name a few. Central to the track is its lush guitar loop, that powers throughout the song. There’s been clear influence from this track on Purple Disco Machine‘s current releases. This is one of those kooky tracks that show its best manifestation when play under the sun. So if you’re looking to pick up the tempo on one of the upcoming BBQs, then this banger might be the one to do it.
Originally released in 2002 by the indie label City Rockers under Damian Lazarus‘ A&R influence. The Crosstown Rebels boss once again proves his ability to discover a mammoth track. If you liking the vibes of the song then you can find a selection of official remixes that offer a variety of takes on the original. Nicole Moudaber offers a mesmerisingly psychedelic, Butch-influenced take on Fly With Me. Ramon Tapia takes it back to old school with his ‘Back To The 90s Piano’ version. What is clear is that the energetic vocals remain at the centre of each remix. If the original is pop up in a DJ set this upcoming summer, then its most likeliest to come from soul-funk influenced Claptone or a J.E.S.u.S reunion. Or the peak hour spin from a Todd Terje Bolivia set.
