Pat Lok ft. Desiree Dawson ‘All In My Head’ (Howson’s Groove Remix)
Vancouver based producer PAT LOK teamed up with the angelic vocalist DESIREE DASWON for what was ‘All In My Head’. A fantastic original, the single has now been revamped by the South East London based duo, HOWSON’S GROOVE.
The remix is a fantastic take that utilises some cool features to change the mood of the track. The driving percussion that remains consistent throughout the tracks entirety makes for a mean head bop, and it’s just fast enough to bring up your pulse. It’s in the chorus where it feels peculiarly right.
There’s a deep synth that almost feels like bass that slides us into the chorus, and that’s when the extent of the vocals begin to be fuelled.
The chorus descends into this lovely dream-like state, and it hits harder when the vocal bridge comes in. It becomes almost atmospheric due to the absence of percussion momentarily, and the choir-like vocals from the solo artist kills it for a few more bars.
I like how progressive this track is. It ranges from typical pop to house to a tinge of atmospheric pop, and I like that blend. It sounds wholesome and definitively dreamy.
HOWSON’S GROOVE have done extremely well in solidifying their sound within PAT LOK & DESIREE DAWSON’s already fantastic track.
