Venice Calypso & Jack France "Buck 4 Ya Dollar (VIP Edit)"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
The "Buck 4 Ya Dollar" single serves as the first effort of the year to appear from burgeoning Londoner Venice Calypso, and finds the artist working alongside UK newcomer Jack France to craft a heavy-handed piece of club fare. On the pair's digital single—out now via Senseless sub-label Neon—the twisted "Buck 4 Ya Dollar" comes backed with a more steady "4x4 VIP" version, fitting the production into an even more efficient package. Anchored by a relentlessly heavy four-on-the-floor, "Buck 4 Ya Dollar (VIP Edit)" focuses on the track's darker elements: a series of organ-like chords, machine-made percussion hits, a particularly brooding piano sequence, and the song's low-pitched titular vocal sample.
