Shadow Child "Friday (Maison Sky Remix)"
- Words: DeForrest Brown
UK-based producer Shadow Child (pictured above) has gained quite a bit of exposure over the years, thanks largely to being noticed by Claude VonStroke, hosting a show on Rinse FM, and dropping his recent Takura-featuring single "Friday." The original version of that song is a radio-friendly house jam full of high-energy R&B vocals and percolating synths, but producer Maison Sky warps the celebratory track it into a doomed, jacking dancefloor groove. While swung patterns of rollicking percussion and motorik snare rushes pile up, Maison Sky pushes his production into an exploding chorus that matches "Friday"'s original flair, just from the other side of the mirror.
