Emerson Todd has been doing well since emerging onto the scene in 2008. Now resident in Berlin, the Australian producer and DJ has found favour with labels like Saved, Upon.You and Apparel and here turns out the 17th release for Danse Club Records. It features one original cut with remixes from Sascha Dive, label heads Brodanse and Nathan Barato.
‘Love Somebody’ is a subtle, slow burning deep house track with magical starry melodies, crispy percussion and a seductively deployed male vocal whisper. A big bassline sweeps up from below to
really beef things up, possibly creating one of of the best things Todd has done. Up first to remix are Brodanse themselves, aka Scott and Austen Smart. Their mix is a more full fat, rounded
and rich tech house groover with warm bass and chattery percussion. Next up is Sascha Dive, boss of the Deep Vibes label. His Dy-Na remix repackages the track as an organic, humid cut with woody
hits, nice dubby chords and a direct groove.
Last but not least, Canadian Nathan Barato steps up to round out the package. His version is druggy and stripped back, texturally rich and almost militant in its groove. It’s the sort of busy, heady track that will encourage floors to get freaky in the dead of night and offers something uniquely different from the original.
