Drop the Pressure by Flash Atkins & 2 Billion Beats
Two of Paper’s favourites have collaborated to update Mylo’s classic Drop The Pressure in to a nu-disco banger that’s set to take over the summer. What started as an edit quickly turned in to a full blooded re-make before they hauled in Crazy P’s Danielle Moore for vocals under her Ladydriver guise.
The original brings a band to the party with rhythm guitar, strings, live bass and horn section. The intro teases before the riff that everybody knows and then wallop, we’re off. For the break, Danni brings the disco and hands in the air doesn’t even touch it.
Norwegian next big things Lakeshouse knock it out the park with their 4/4 nu-disco version. It weaves the dynamics and melody around a vocoder and NRG that locks in to deliver a classy, dancefloor remix.
Marma Boog goes deep and cosmic for a pitched down balearic take. 80s synths and drums top off burbling and tripped out vocals. Sunsets never sounded so good.
