I know near nothing of Adam Port, the Berlin based DJ/producer, and you won’t find much Drake or Weezy in my “Recently Played” lists… but for some reason this house edit of the Take Care track that spawned a cultural meme caught my ear.
I should also preclude this by saying I’m not much of a house head either, so I don’t mean to belittle the music when I say that the reason I think this refix works so well is because it further contextualizes the Drake song pretty much strictly for club environments. As much as Drake can emphasize the emotional aspect of his style, his music is still the most convincing and honest when it’s in a party context.
Though it may be the move now, I don’t think angsty twenty-somethings will be blasting Drake to get them by in 20 years. Adam Port emphasizes the low end and lets added percussion slap in this extended version of the track. Though the original is one of Drake’s more enjoyable outings, this I wouldn’t mind running into on a night out.
