Though it would take us a four-decade time travel to the past to fully experience the off-the-charts impact of Disco legend George McCrae’s global breakthrough record (‘Rock Your Baby’), that doesn’t mean he’s done impressing the world with his golden voice. On Sander Kleinenberg’s brand-new single, ‘Colours In The Sun’, George McCrae’s soulful vocals are juggled with the Dutch DJ and producer’s sublime rhythms, ensuring a marvelous Armada Deep release no dance music lover can get enough of.
From the well-crafted arrangement to the subtle melodies and George McCrae’s deep, charming vocals, ‘Colours In The Sun’ is a top-notch production on all fronts and 100% playlist material. Laced even further with uplifting beats and a firm bassline, this cut also stakes its claim as a peak-time dance floor smash.
Sander Kleinenberg: “Working with George has been an absolute pleasure, it is not every day you are able to work with a legend of his magnitude. Revamping his voice and making him relevant for a 2018 dance floor has been one of the highlights of my career so far.”
Sander Kleinenberg has been among the scene’s trailblazers for over twenty years. The award-winning DJ and producer is known for remixing the likes of Halsey, Justin Timberlake, Daft Punk, Madonna and Janet Jackson and continues to infect the masses with his high-end originals and all-around top-quality music on a regular basis. ‘Colours In The Sun’ is a sterling example of just that.
George McCrae, who recently made an appearance in Jools Holland’s 25th annual Hootenanny on BBC Two , scored a global smash hit in 1974 with ‘Rock Your Baby’, which sold over 11 million copies around the world as topped the charts in a host of countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom. Touted as one of the first-ever Disco hits, the song earned the American artist a Grammy for ‘Best Male R&B Vocalist’ in 1975 and marked the start of a remarkably successful career that’s been bearing fruit to this very day.
