REVIEW: Chicane & Steve Edwards - Carry Me Home out on Modena records / Armada Music

Ahead of the celebratory retrospective album 'Twenty' in July 2016 comes the single, 'Carry Me Home', featuring the vocals of Mr Steve Edwards.

Although the album highlights Chicane from the beginning in 1996, the re-working of the Gloworm single from the 90's, proves Chicane still has an ear to inject his own inimitable slant on a song, one that is fresh and currant, as would be expected of someone who has sold over 5 million records, and written and performed some of the seminal classics of the dance genre over course of his career; working with artists like Steve and artists as diverse as, Bryan Adams, Duane Harden, Lisa Gerrard, Sir Tom Jones, Natasha Beddingfield.

The album Twenty also has some remixes of the classic tracks by some of the current stars of the dance world.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Carry Me Home , one of the most beloved dance classics is back by the hands of the one and only Chicane. The new versions offered are simply irresistible and manage to blend the 90's epic synths with deeper groovier foundation of smooth deep basslines, chunky wonky garage style bassline while the vocal is simply classy and one that elevates the original even higher. Melodic deep house on the original version while on the other side the Rave Sandwich version targets the big floors and mainstage sets perfect for the future house/rave house moments. Great classy basslines and even more huge breakdown that slowly builds tension until it erupts out of any proportion so you will see many happy smiling faces on the festival floors. The package need definitely a chill out version as well. #PureGold Love It [/content]
