Kulkid "U Were The One"
- Words: Leo Maymind
French producer Kulkid has already built a following based on a string of remixes that have managed to turn a variety of source material (Bon Iver, Lana Del Rey, Mumford & Sons) into dancefloor fodder. Featured here, his debut original track "U Were The One" finds a crisp steel-drum melody rubbing shoulders with a very of-the-moment pitched vocal sample and a snappy house beat that will undoubtedly fit into a range of DJ mixes. The tune's arrangement succeeds at keeping the energy level up while utilizing a few reverb-flooded detours, but the highlight comes around the halfway point, when Kulkid drops the trendier elements and instead slides a portamento-fueled synth riff into the mix with ease. Despite not taking many (or any) risks, "U Were The One" certainly succeeds at demonstrating Kulkid's ability to create engaging original productions.
