 [item value="10"]Nick Jonas feat. Tove Lo - Close[/item]
 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Close is a marvellous song that illustrates how the pop music attempts to escape from certain conventions and move towards more electronic music sensibility that simply works perfectly with the lyrics and the excellent performances by Nick and the beloved Tove Lo. The new remixes are perfect for the deep house sets. Both Dan E and Louis Vivet add their melodic sound with deep pulsating basslines, chunky relaxing grooves, guitar riffs and great synthy and string sounds. It makes you want to dance along and it will get many plays in the holidays resorts this summer that people would love to get closer to their loved ones. This is electro pop at its  very best! #PureGold Love it [/content]
