Crafting dance tracks around snippets of catchy R&B vocals is a longstanding tradition in the electronic music game. Some might even call it cliché at this point. But when it's done well, it can imbue otherwise anonymous music with real emotional heft that speaks to a much wider audience.
Georgian producer Gacha (last name Bakradze) didn't need to sample Ready For The World's "Oh Sheila" on his new downtempo cut "Let Me Love You" — the rest of the song is intoxicating enough to stand on its own — but the tasteful edit certainly elevates it from standard chill-out room material to a potential hit worthy of instant replays.
"Let Me Love You" appears on Gacha's upcoming album, Send Two Sunsets, out May 5 on R&S offshoot Apollo Records. You can hear another album preview, "Waterfall," on the latest All Songs Considered podcast.
