Mike Mago, founder of the Dutch label BMKLTSCH RCRDS, is a producer of music keen on the philosophy “it’s not about genre, it’s about taste.” Recently featured on The Magician’s Magic Tape Twenty-Two, it’s safe to say Mago is living up to his philosophy.
Anyone born in the 80s or earlier knows the 1990 hit “The Power” by Snap quite well. The infiltrating hook makes it more than hard to deny. Flashing forward to the present day, Mago features vocal samples from the famous hit to reinvigorate the over 20-year-old cut (has it really been that long?).
Focusing on the hook, Mago slightly speeds up the beat with a repetitive yet impactful beat, bringing power to every and any dance extravaganza – 90s themed or not. With steady drums and beats throughout, the last decade of the 20th century seem to rear its crop top, overall-wearing head again, if only for one night.
