REVIEW: Phats & Small - Turn Around (Hey What's Wrong With You) out on Armada Music

Oh, the memories. Phats & Small's 'Turn Around (Hey What's Wrong With You)' was one of the most inspiring House tunes in the late '90s and it returns in a multitude of forms and shapes to get the amassed crowds cheering and chanting again. Taking the spotlight are CALVO's groove-heavy remix, Futuristic Polar Bears' briskly-paced progressive rendition, Maison & Dragen's classic take on the record and Mousse T's Dirty Dub. Add to that the sweet sensations of the original that captivated the whole world nearly two decades ago and you know for sure that this timeless tune is back in business.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]One of the best ever house tracks from the past Turn Around (Hey What's Wrong With You)  by   Phats & Small is back with brand new versions that makes it so current and so ready to conquer our hearts once again. The Extended mix is based on the classic disco sampler with tougher bassline and groove but with the great atmosphere of the original slighter tougher. Maison & Dragen add their magic and come up with the perfect relaxing tropical house version packed with xylophone melodies, smooth basslines and great rhythm to dance around. CALVO remix is the future house rendition with punchy basslines, classic old school pianos and rave organ riffs along with the memorable vocal. Futuristic Polar Bears manage to bring the track to the mainstage with thumping grooves, in your face basslines, sirens like synths and crazy rave synths. Lastly the German legend Mousse T offer his Dirty Dub that is tribalish underground and minimal with tech house influences and minimal application of the vocal samples. Perfect package that includes all the possible current house genres that you may think of. #PureGold Love It  [/content]
