Michael Calfan returns to high-profile remix duties to release his second official remix of David Guetta. In an attempt to follow up last year’s take on ‘Turn Me On,’ the familiar voice of Aussie songstress Sia Furler and Guetta’s intricate instrumental work of ‘She Wolf (Falling To Pieces)’ receive a sturdy remodel in true Michael Calfan fashion. Showcasing the same synth-tinged sound that we have come to associate with the Paris-based protégé of Bob Sinclar, Calfan’s melodic play successfully matches the sinewy voice of Sia while setting the tone ahead of further remix duties for Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike and Regi.

In the same vein that initially caught the ears of Swedish House Mafia among many others, newly inaugrated Axtone duo from the Netherlands, NO_ID, release their take on David Guetta and Nicky Romero’s recent remodel of Flo Rida and Sia’s ‘Wild Ones’. Carrying hallmarks that are somewhat similar to ‘How R U Feeling Right Now‘, the duo which has shown a great intent of letting merely the music do the talking, hence the name, gives the first instalment, entitled ‘Wild One Two‘, in the new collaborative affair between Guetta and Romero the NO_ID treatment. Adding to Sia Furler’s captivating top line, this Amsterdam pair are simply making their easy going signature sound fit like a hand in a glove.

With mixed enthusiasm and a lot of speculation surrounding a controversial fusion of two allegedly opposite musical forces, the R&B/House crossover has continued to turn heads in a mixture of delight and disgust across the globe. Already firm contributors to this regenerative process of chart monotony, David Guetta and Nicky Romero have proven competent in making positive noise out of the often predictable and mundane realms of popular music, and further so as they, with the release of their latest sugary chart-monger ‘Wild One Two’, launch their collective outfit called Jack Back.

Leading with the unalloyed vocal stylings of Sia, Romero and Guetta build an emotive canvas of delicate keys and rising leads before launching into a hard-hitting offering of growling riffs and chugging Electro-tinged House music. The result is a track that not only illustrates the popular movement’s sturdier assets, but celebrates the fact that somewhere along the line, the union of urban influences and bonafide Electronic artists has proven integrally satisfying on both the club floor and the airwaves. Say what you will about the urban face of radio-friendly Electronic Dance music, but with the potential for outings of this calibre, there are far worse things happening in Dance music than this outstanding offering from two of the industry’s leading European House forces.

With mixed enthusiasm and a lot of speculation surrounding a controversial fusion of two allegedly opposite musical forces, the R&B/House crossover has continued to turn heads in a mixture of delight and disgust across the globe. Already firm contributors to this regenerative process of chart monotony, David Guetta and Nicky Romero have proven competent in making positive noise out of the often predictable and mundane realms of popular music.

Picking up the original pieces of the hip hop / Dance oriented original, the French superstar and hotly tipped Dutch hopeful team up for an offering that offers a positive light on the high-risk venture. Opting for Sia’s graceful vocal work over the less-appealing enunciations of the track’s Floridian rhyme smith, Romero and Guetta build an emotive canvas of delicate keys and rising leads before launching into a hard-hitting offering of growling riffs and chugging Electro-tinged House music. Popular music is trying very hard to have its way with Electronic Dance music and with the potential for remodes of the calibre, there are far worse things happening in Dance music than this increasingly popular musical coupling.

Wild One Two by Jack Back, David Guetta, Nicky Romero and Sia is due out February 14th via Big Beat Records.
