Hear SIDEPIECE and Lee Foss sample Ciara on ‘1, 2 Step’
Sampling hits from the early 2000’s continues to be a trend among tech-house producers. Grammy-nominated duo SIDEPIECE and Repopulate Mars label head Lee Foss take inspiration from Ciara and Missy Elliot’s R&B fan favorite “1,2 Step” on what surfaces as their first joint effort. “1, 2 Step” is SIDEPIECE’s first single since February’s “Don’t Keep Me Waiting,”; for Foss, it comes in response to his May 13 EP, Golden State.
Beginning with an ominous build, “1, 2 Step” layers in powerful drums over the sampled lyrics. Premiered during SIDEPIECE 2021 EDC Las Vegas set, this house tune has been waiting in the wings for seven months and now, it’s primed and ready for play across the summer festival circuit.
