The holiday season is officially in full swing. At a time when people the world over are gathering with friends and family sharing gifts and good times, we at Gray Area know that one of the best gifts any music lover can receive is a great song recommendation. They say the greatest joy comes from giving, and we wholeheartedly agree as we happily share another stellar Track of the Week. This week, our gift to you comes in the form of a crunchy new SOSA remix.
This new flip sees the UK young gun take aim at Cobrah and Chris Lorenzo’s carnal tech house cut, “MAMI.” The original was a fan favorite on the summer circuit with its deceivingly deep bass undulating under a cheeky vocal hook and a featherlight steel drum. This fall and winter have seen SOSA’s remix take center stage with plays from Chris Lake, Michael Bibi, and Cloonee. A major facelift for the drum kit gives this tune an injection of danceable energy from beat one. Change out the steel drum for a swath of gritty synths, and this track becomes one attitude-filled fire starter. Push play and try not to strut your stuff. We dare you.
We love seeing an artist flex their range. While this unstoppable rework is brimming with dynamic components, SOSA has often been a champion for the minimal techno sound. In 2020, the Liverpool native launched his record label, COCO, providing a launch pad for up-and-comers worldwide. He has since topped charts and gained recognition with releases on Catch and Release, Repopulate Mars, and Ministry of Sound. Chris Lake recently recruited the COCO label head for a remix of his 2022 smash hit, “A Drug From God.”
We were lucky enough to snag SOSA for a mix on our monthly Sirius radio show, OCHO recently. Press play and get a taste of his sound below.
