J-Wow "Spark (Canblaster Remix)"
Well, this is a bit different from what we've come to expect from the recently Bubblin'-featured artist Canblaster, but we're into it all the same. French producer Cedric Steffens leans a bit heavy on the original kuduro sound for his remix of "Spark" by J-Wow (of Buraka Som Sistema fame, pictured above), but still manages to squeeze a heavy helping of club-ready house into the mix. But while the beats may change between four-on-the-floor steadiness and a skittering electro-tinged bounce, the thickly layered synths and assorted sound effects remain constant—keeping the listener (read: dancefloor patron) focused among the hectic back and forth.
