Australia’s @AronaMane offers infectious ‘retrofuture’ toe-tapper “Oscar” featuring @PTfromNZ

ARONA MANE featuring P.T., “Oscar”

With those of us in the great white north heading into Spring, unique and fun toe-tappers like “Oscar” from Sydney’s Arona Mane featuring Auckland R&B vocalist P.T. are more than welcome.  I’m not sure where the influence for the uncharacteristic rhythm comes from, but it could draw on aboriginal Australian music as much as it might African, Caribbean or South American songs.  Regardless, it’s pretty irresistible, with P.T.’s slick vocal creating a solid anchor.  Once you get past the music you’ll find some lyrics which seem to be set on having a good time after you’ve gotten through some hurdles, the goal being your own “Oscar”.  Arona Mane calls this one ‘retrofuture’, which is kind of a contradiction, but at the same time begs the thought that house music with infectious rhythms like “Oscar” could be what the rest of the world will be listening to in a year.  There may be some foundation to that thought!  Check out “Oscar” at the link above.
