Axwell, Angello, Ingrosso & Laidback Luke – Get Dumb
This track is a result of the ‘Swedish House Mafia’ putting their collective know-how together in a recording studio, with only a toilet and fag breaks to tide them over! With such big names comes expectations, and Get Dumb fulfills them and more.
There are three mixes that were provided for my listening pleasure – the Original, the Mark Knight dub, as well as the Radio Edit. The Original Mix is a snappier version of this electro house track; there is a bleepy loop woven throughout the track which is seamless and catchy. Axwell/Ingrosso/Angello and Laidback Luke have definitely delivered a high energy floor filler and I can imagine all the posers are going to enjoy watching their reflections shimmy and jive along to this one!
Mark Knight’s Dub Mix is groovier and sexier with more of a dubby feel to it… No surprises there! The two word hook is catchy and hypnotic, not hard to memorize either which will be a big relief for those that like to sing along but just can’t get a handle on the words. The Radio Edit on the other hand is a combination of the two, both bleepy and funky. Very clever and upbeat.
I’ve heard that the track has been heralded as one of the ‘Essential New Tunes’ of 2007 by none other than Pete Tong. Reccomendation enough I would think. You can add my substantially less influential vote to that one!
