Secondcity feat. Ali Love – What Can I Do (Original Mix)
On paper, Secondcity’s balance of cool, credible and commercial sounds shouldn’t work. The knock-on effect from chart topping hit “I Wanna Feel” has not equated to a focus on radio friendly ventures, but instead developed into a steady run of releases for Saved and Defected. It’s been a dotted path, but all leading comfortably to his latest vocal installment for Ministry of Sound.
The British bruiser’s firm melodic composure and Ali Love’s immediately ardent top line form to make “What Can I Do,” a cut boasting solid production values from start to finish and an unapologetic stance on bringing credible pop hallmarks back to the table. We’re long past the underground snobbery that has historically surrounded the genre – here stands an artist leaping between the two with little evidence of any dip in quality.
“What Can I Do” could well be the clandestine house hit that everyone has been waiting for, but at the very least further evidences Secondcity’s unique stance on pushing the fenre forward in 2014.
