Forgotten Friday: Calvin Harris – Flashback (Eric Prydz Remix)
Here at Dancing Astronaut we aim to set new trends while keeping everyone up to date with the latest Electronic Dance Music. However, with so much innovation within our favorite music genre it is relatively easy for a few ‘anthems’ to slip throu
gh the cracks and go unnoticed. Our newest ‘trend’ will allow everyone the chance to go back in time and either remember a track that has not gotten the exposure it deserves or for the song to regain exposure from our fan base through this post. Forgotten Fridays differ from our old trend Throwback Thursdays in that it does not require a timetable for evaluation. A relatively new song can be a Forgotten Friday if we feel that that the requirements written below have been achieved.
In order to qualify for a Forgotten Friday the track must have:
A. Been overshadowed by another remix of the same song.
B. Been completely overlooked and not received the air time it deserves due to ‘bigger’ releases that came out around the same time period.
For those of you that have seen a live set from Calvin Harris you will notice that the original mix of “Flashback garners the loudest crowd reaction (maybe you can make an argument for “Awooga”or “Bounce”, but this may be due to their relatively recent releases). The original mix is catchy – combining solid vocals with a playful beat, it is no surprise why it is a well known song. Eric Prydz’ remix sneaks up on you, it is relatively mellow (most of Prydz tracks are on the very progressive side of things), but the well timed vocals and ambient bassline gives you a spiritual feeling. Time to brush the dust off on this tune and start getting this some more airplay!
