Lucas & Steve – Blinded feat. Bethany (Damaged Goods Remix)
Miami based DJ and producer Damaged Goods knows the value of versatility in a constantly changing and ever-fickle music scene. From Queen to Carola, his sets are always a wild ride across the musical spectrum. It appears he applies the same attitude to his work in the studio, experimenting with whatever sounds happen to catch his fancy. His latest release, a remix of Lucas & Steve’s “Blinded,” for instance, takes us to the dark and smoky recesses of an intimate basement lounge. A hybrid of sorts, the remix leans definitively toward a nu-age house sound, with its bouncy groove line and haunting melodies. But no Damaged Goods track is complete without a healthy dose of intensity; hard-hitting builds and DG’s signature triplet bass sequences add a big-room, peak hours edge, making it suitable for the mega clubs he’s used to playing.
