Enawadan

Reborn

An up and coming artist that has already seen success with the past single, I’m Still Standing released by Offering Records, not to mention another featured single on the Osunlade In The House mixed compilation on the legendary English house of House, Defected. Enawadan’s unique take on dance music continues to dazzle the ears and soul with his Reborn release on Sonar Kollektiv. Four remixes of Reborn by Tuff City Kids, Inner Dimensions, and of course Enawadan, Reborn receives some new treatment that will surely impress.

Opening the release, Inner Dimensions launches the listener into a dynamic display of powerful string infused grooves with worldly drums and rhythms. Enawadan’s hypnotizing vocals captivate the listener through every break and sudden drop. Next up, Tuff City Kids supply two versions on this release with old school fueled, pumping, analog sounds, and a more aggressive reverberating beat with their Acid Mix.

Lastly, Enawadan remixes his own track with a sensual deep groove that reminds one of the San Francisco Deep House sound from the early millennium, with saxophone melodies, entrancing vocals and walking live bass rhythms. Enawadan’s ability to not only produce quality house music, but also his vocal talents allow for a bright future in his career. The future voice of House music is uncertain but one cannot argue that Enawadan is a top contender in moving it forward.
