Think Twice
Yousef, Alexander East
Defected

The man behind Circus recordings delivers another poignantly penned vocal cut with the follow up to ‘Beg’, featuring the soothing and heartfelt vocals of Alexander East. Set against a backdrop of melodic and melancholic synths, the down tempo percussion and intermittent nostalgic piano loop cleverly compliment the self reflective lyrics, helping Yousef tell his emotive story of hope and self esteem. This is another sophisticated, multifaceted cut, designed just as much for the dance floor as it is a genuine narrative, once again exemplifying his intelligent and refined production skills.
In stark contrast the Catz ‘n Dogz remix couldn’t be any further from the original, the vocal having been stripped away leaving it devoid of its former emotion. Instead the intricate fusion of percussive sounds and experimental patterning of breakdowns, coupled with a thumping ‘in yer face’ bass line and low end reverberating synths, make it an ideal track for getting down and dirty. To complete the package is Fred Everything’s Lazy Vox Remix is a more obvious and straight up club ready reworking of the original with its up tempo rhythms, dynamic bassline and chopped up vocals. And with Fred Everything’s Lazy Dub thrown in for good measure this is, in short, a perfect party package.
