It’s always awesome when long-time collaborators and friends can set aside some time, combine their individual talents and form a hybrid EDM group. Well, with the union of Bart B More, Tommie Sunshine and RipTide, better known as HORSEPOWER, we have just that and much more. With an album already in the works, I’m here to bring you a couple of their promising remixes and their latest take on ‘Only The Horses’ by the Scissor Sisters — classic, right? With eclectic stylings, heavy bass, blips & bleeps, disco elements and way more characteristics than we can name, the forming of Horsepower allows these three to explore sub-genre’s in EDM that we can all establish a new found appreciation for. Kicking off their group project with a Christmas-themed track a couple months back with Takei, ‘All I Want For Christmas is Techno’, Horsepower made their initial footprint in the sand with some audio Xmas cheer. Next, they tackled the dancehall king, Sean Paul’s single ‘She Doesn’t Mind’ with their own grungy take. With heavy drums and perfectly placed vocal cuts, Horsepower stayed true to Paul’s dancehall nature, but added an electro, Dutch house feel that’s bound to tear the club up.
In truth, it was Horsepower’s most recent production, ‘Only The Horses’ that fully caught my attention. The timeless vocals coupled with nu-disco synths and a playful bassline make this remix the clear stand out of the three. With an epic synth lead in, the classic piano riff from the original prepares you for the vocally-connected break down. Although, it’s not too difficult to place Bart, Tommie and RipTide into specific genres, they continue to produce music that pushes the envelope for EDM and also showcases some of their hidden talents. We actually were able to speak to Rip Tide the other day and let’s just say that a Horsepower interview is something you should look for in the future on the site. Oh and be sure to follow them on Twitter @HORSEPOWERPOWER!
