Trent Cantrelle ft. Stacy Barthe – Born (Original Mix)
Inaugural X label contributor Trent Cantrelle is back with a long overdue to the double-sided Nice & Close EP for Steve Angello’s latest label venture. Though returning with just one track for the label, “Born,” calls upon Stacy Barthes to test the waters of vocal house music and its compatibility with the unpolished twist we have come to expect from the imprint to date. Hypnotic vocals and sluggish beats in motion, the North American producer opts for docile opulence over the peak time hallmarks more recently adopted by X’s ever-expanding roster. This, however, is part of what makes Cantrelle not only one of the more versatile house advocates of the time, but a welcome face at a label assisting the forward motions of underground dance music.
