ANTONIO GIACCA, “Every Way”
L.A.-based, Italy-born dance producer Antonio Giacca made two of my favourite dance tunes of 2015/16 with “Ignited” and the wickedly catchy “Sensation”. He returns in full effect with some slamming house with “Every Way”. Pop music fans will immediately recognize that “Every Way” is a rework essentially of the early Motown hit “He Was Really Saying Somethin'”, a minor 60’s release by The Velvelettes. It’s better known in Europe and the UK in a 1982 cover by Bananarama that was their second UK Top 5 chart hit. But “Every Way” sounds like it samples a slightly pitched-down vocal from the original and makes it brim with funky house energy that will be very inviting for club DJ’s anywhere.
