There is no denying the stronghold Tiësto has on global Dance music. As a blazing beacon of first-rate contributions to global Dance music, his watchful gaze over the realms of his craft has seen him remain increasingly relevant across the entirety of his seventeen-year recording career. Packing out Privilege Ibiza with crowds 10,000 strong on a weekly basis, while his contributions to the soundtrack of this year’s Mission Impossible sequel suggests that it is more than just the globes ecstatic clubbers that are paying attention. Even the most bitter of rivals could not deny that as far as consistent contribution and ecstatic fandom are concerned, Tiësto comes second to none.
Unrecognisable in sound compared with the original Dance icon that set ablaze the Olympic Games in Athens back in 2004 with a euphoric display of athletic Trance wizardry, Tiësto’s early Christmas present carry’s on his more recent grasp on the Housier side of affairs. For this soulful vocal explosion of emotive builds and hard-hitting synthesisers, Tiësto attempts bridges the gap between traditional and Progressive House, using the emotional charged vocals of Anastacia to bring the remnants of House’s heyday to his up-in-the-air onslaught of conceptual club floor chivalry. While sure to be sour milk to those still reeling in the memories of his Trance-orientated heyday, What Can We Do (A Deeper Love) attempts to bring a genuine sense of progression to the table and while not bragging the life changing afterthoughts of his previous work, it is a sure indicator that there is some steam left in the original Dutch super producer.
Where Tiësto attempts to bridge this pivotal gap, renowned British duo Third Party plunge deep into the energetic Progressive House vibes that have established them as firm favourites for the likes of Size Records following beloved releases Duel and ‘Release’. With some of the globes biggest festivals under their belt and an appearance alongside Swedish House Mafia for their Masquerade Motel residency at Pacha Ibiza, Third Party leave 2011 as one of Britain’s most hotly anticipated House assets. Their take on ‘What Can We Do (A Deeper Love)’, then, commits to the Progressive vibes hinted within Tiësto’s original, dealing in bigger builds and constructive melodic play to deliver an incredibly promising nod to the future for this bright rising House force on the apex of what could be an essential leap into the limelight for 2012.
‘What Can We Do (A Deeper Love)’ sees its worldwide release, following a territory restricted release through Google Music last month, on December 20th via Musical Freedom along with a remix from Third Party.
