Saux "Show You The Light"
- Words: Jesse Sussman
Bobby Caldwell's voice has been sampled quite a bit over the years—specifically, his track "Open Your Eyes" was given new life after Common implemented a piece of the recording for his Grammy-nominated "The Light." Following the release of his latest acclaimed EP, young Dutch producer Saux (a.k.a. Jurian van deer Hoeven) has sampled the same tune for "Show You the Light," albeit quite differently. In addition to layering Caldwell's vocals to create multiple pitched-shifted harmonies, Saux adds a heap of warm ambience, classic Rhodes piano, and slightly unconventional rhythms which work well with the distinct vocals. With "Show You the Light," van deer Hoeven has effectively proven the staying power of Caldwell's voice while simultaneously showing off his own tasteful production chops.
