Some tracks are an absolute pleasure to review. Here we have a personal favourite as experienced German house producer Dave Ramone returns with a huge original, ‘Summer Love’. Featuring an impeccable top-line by superb female vocalist Minelli, this vibrant house track is one you can’t afford to leave out of that summer playlist.
Vocal chops with large, well sculpted reverb and lush pads introduce ‘Summer Love’ before the unmistakable voice of Minelli floats over intricate piano chords. The solid structure of this track is evident at this point as a mid-break kick drum injects energy underneath the vocal stem. The track is then in a build with snares and into a house drop segment. All the time the vocal is used to great effect.
Through the drops, Ramone makes this track highly suitable for the club, with these energetic sections making ‘Summer Love’ easy to slip into a DJ set. There is a beautiful hint of future house that extends the audience range this original will appeal to as well.
Lyrically, Ramone and Minelli show a high of creativity, with the words painting a picture of the story this track is telling. It is sung outstandingly well. A huge amount of talent is required to mix the vocal stem as well as this into a track, showcasing Ramone’s abundance of production skills.
We look forward to keeping an eye on this track, sure to be a big hit this summer. Available across digital outlets, check out Dave Ramone Feat. Minelli – Summer Love (Single Mix), here:
