Once a valiant Warrior amid British Trance, the rebirth of Michael Woods as the essential European Progressive House asset has proven a game-changing move for British Dance Music. In an extension of his mainstream-calling studio countenance, the chart topping producer takes on Marina and The Diamonds for a vivacious merging of her signature vocal stylings and Woods renowned club floor diligence.
In an age where the pop/club crossover sparks more rigorous online debate than record sales, those cautious of this second coming of Michael’s attempts to unite popular music and Progressive House need not panic. In a romp of resonant synths and Marina’s impressively angelic against the blissful Woods drops, the duo avoid offence with a legitimately impressive entourage of credible mainstream Dance credentials.
‘Power & Control’ will be released July 22th.
