Weekend Rewind: Eric Prydz – Slammin’ (Axwell Remix)
There were once simpler times when success in dance music was measured by the quality of production rather than mainstream commercial appeal. Releases were rife with authenticity and strayed from the artificial drivel that saturates present-day clubland. Today’s Weekend Rewind shines light on those days — showcasing a groovy progressive cut from Axwell’s remake to Eric Prydz’s “Slammin’.”
The track’s lead holds your attention from the onslaught as crisp drum work and swirling synths culminate to a commanding saxophone sequence. The song features true house undertones throughout, laden with retro chord play from first bar to last. If you find yourself becoming disinterested in the repetitive bent of today’s dance music industry, peruse through old release catalogs and you’ll come across classic gems like this one.
