Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned.
The “bleepy” riff is heinously irritating and Kirsty’s vocals are talent-less and forgettable. This is a track that suddenly makes Avicii’s latest offerings look incredibly sophisticated in comparison. A crappy video of Kirsty trying, and failing, to look as amative as possible does nothing to enhance this shoddy single that should never have seen the light of day. How many more times do we need to hear the lyrics “Ooh! Ohh! I like what you do to me!”
The sad thing is, for as long as nonsense like this exists, there will always be a commercialised side to dance music looked upon by others as a bit of a joke. Please Kirsty, if you love the genre of dance music, go away.
