THE NICEGUYS feat. BOBBY SAINT: Power

THE NICEGUYS feat. BOBBY SAINT:  PowerRating: ★★★★★ Man, seems like it’s been raining forever but maybe The Niceguys will call up the sun with joyously energetic new upbeat cut Power featuring Bobby Saint. The beat has every bit the pneumatic drum bedrock you’d expect and this is laced with squelchy wah-wah guitar that occasional jangles loose into a solo while Saint commits Prince-like vocals to the mic. As if that isn’t enough, it also comes with the instro and an A Skillz remix. This strips things back, pretty much making it all about the rhythm, reducing the vox to phrases, replacing the drums with some clattery, slightly louder ones (conga breakdown included) while foregrounding a synth bassline. Nice work, but the original is still king.
