I love everything about this tune, deep....dope and a bit of madness!


August 19, 2014

this is where C2 officially ended as an artist (at least for me). it's well produced and it's good for soundchecks, musicwise's the sort of piece that makes me and likeminded dancers leave the dancefloor, hopefully before it 's flooded by half-conscious RA kids.. "perfect" big room nonsense.

Although it oficially came out in 2005, it didn't reach the clubs to full extent before early 2006 - so it should be fair considering it "the remix of the year '06". Indeed its simplicity is stunning, which makes it a perfect example of how perception changes based on the environment things are faced at. Being just a nice and basic Fender Rhodes workout listened to at home, on the floor it simply turns into monster with some serios tonal interference above.

Btw., Theo Parrish had no hint this track was to be remixed at all. Craig did it without even having the parts. Sadly, the label has decided to press the utmost out of the market by licensing it away and comissioning rather uninspired remixes by Technasia and Chateau Flight.

People raved about Carl Craig's Remix of "Falling Up" when it came out and I remember eventually doing so, too. Though, now that I've heard it a lot more often than I'd have liked to I am slowly starting to question this tune's quality. Yes, I dare challenge the broad majority's taste.

What is it that still makes DJs play it in each of their sets anyways? The outdated sounding, repetitive bassline that bores you for the entire length of the track? The oh-so-original two-chords organ-loop that fades in towards the end? The fact that this is one of only a few listenable but not outstanding recent productions Carl Craig has released in the last two years? I don't know and I probably never will. However, while I initially thought that this record was pretty nice, the only way I can think of it now is to consider it a hype which is a pity after all. So let it rest in peace - you've already played it to death.

Fantastic deep Detroit house. Carl Craig really shines on this limited remix 10 incher. He has totally stripped down the original and it starts with a simple beat and builds with a hypnotic and dirty synthloop, but that doesnt make this aggressive a bit. Coz there is alot going on after some time, but it still keeps a natural balance all the way trough, never losing any edge or grip. Very Detroit, Very sublime. Not complex but it really just crawls slowly into your head and in the end you just got to get down to it. What a 2005 finale.
