Watch The Sun Come Up - Example Single Review
Posted: 13th September, 2009
Example has rolled out some suspect (as in naughty) boot-mash compilations and racked up a mere morsel of adulation at various play-outs during the last few years including comedy gigs and DJ moments. Now he has an album approaching called Won't Go Quietly and a raft of appearances confirmed for the autumn to promote this rather infectious holiday-romance single.
Its a Moby-pianoloop-cum-Ibiza-bounce-holiday-tune that might just drive you nuts come the winter. I do wonder if its being released at the wrong time of year but, if you like an optimistic Balearic bouncer with a crazy chorus mixed with big rave-style swells and smiles, this might well untie your anchor. Forget Mylo, forget Calvin Harris and forget that rubbish nonsense called the Mercury and park your sun-kissed arse over here Example has written a damn neat tune here.
Some decent remixes here propel the whole thing forward, namely the lovely rolling Blame drum n bass remix. Straight out of the Good Lookin LTJ Bukem school of smiles and joy, it is a strolling good-time tune that ought to be gracing every non-aggressive sound-system during the imaginary British Indian Summer that must surely come. Hospital Records used to churn stuff out like this every week a few years ago yet no one cared you should, its good stuff. Nice work Example now show us what youve got.....
