Brenmar "Taking it Down"
It's here: the first official release from Brooklyn-via-Chicago DJ/producer Brenmar, entitled At it Again. As longtime lovers of the talented artist's R&B- and hip-hop-infused house tunes, not to mention good music everywhere, XLR8R is pleased to bring you the first free taste from the six-track EP, the engaging dancefloor bubbler "Taking it Down." If Brenmar's tune is anything, it's evidence that he knows how to turn relatively dubious source material, like, say, Top 40 radio fodder heavy with potential guilty-pleasure vibes, into music with relevance, substance, and new ideas. The producer nabbed snippets from "Clubbin'", the 2003 debut solo single by Marques Houston (of Immature and Sister, Sister fame), for "Taking it Down," and applied the slick vocal melodies to his own fresh, club-ready instrumental—resulting in a stand-out tune that further validates his growing importance in the world of dance music. You can hear what other great tracks Brenmar has to offer by streaming all of At it Again, which also features collaborative remixes from Ikonika & Optimum and DJ Rashad & DJ Earl & DJ BMT, here, or buying the EP here.
