Arno Cost & Norman Doray – Strong (Original Mix)
From their origins as two-thirds of The Freshmakers through to their modern collaborative get-up, Arno Cost and Norman Doray have proven a force unparalleled in the Parisian big room game. Having recently revisited “Apocalypse” for Spinnin Records and respectively blazed the trail with versatile productions throughout 2014, the summer beckons a long overdue first mutual single for Size Records from the melodic house dream team.
“Strong” is characteristically tailored to the duo’s polished studio etiquette, fusing subtle French touch influences, strong melodic elements and an immediately catchy vocal hook to the utmost avail. The finished result is a big room track that racks perky, nostalgically charged and wholeheartedly anthemic moments almost simultaneously. Given the state of the genre in 2014, “strong” is testament to the fact that there is still hope for the big room market and its creative juices. By far one of Size’s finest moments of the year so far, Arno Cost and Norman Doray hit home yet more reason to keep the faith where France’s contributions to modern dance music are concerned.
