Carousel - Let’s Go Home (Sound Remedy Remix)

First posted on Hilly Dilly Oct 21, 2012 For a while, I skipped this song, because it starts out all slow and pretty—-not what is called for when getting your dance on. But this is just the sign of a finely crafted dance song. Dance music has a lead-in to make it easier for the DJ to mix, Sound Remedy just chose to do this with a lovely opening rather than the naked bass, as weaker DJs do.But the song doesn’t show why it’s one of the best dance songs of 2012 until 1:49, when it drops some retro 80s-esque bliss on your ears.  At 4:20 you get a siren and a bit more flair, and the song explodes into a synth wet dream.
