estelle in danger!
i'm really in two minds about this 'american boy' single by estelle & kanye west. sure, she has a great, unique voice, but the west-coast disco-lite backing track is like the soundtrack to a trip to borders or something. and some seriously lazy, wholesale sampling really doesnt push any buttons at my end. good thing then, that current parisian 'it' boy danger! has torn the arse out of it and started again. MUCH more interesting chords and his trademark '80s soundtrack' vibe really lifts it to much more listenable level. i even wish we could dispose of the vox completely (dub anyone?).
