WH0, NILE RODGERS and JOSH BARRY, “Better Day”
“Better Day” is a cool surprise for dance music fans. Although it seems like only a taste at 2:30, it is in fact a redux of a Nile Rodgers production by CHIC’s Norma Jean called “High Society”. To boot, Nile has been such a fan of British producers WH0 (known so far mainly for their remixes as well as wearing masks in performance) during their short three year existence, that he invited them to revisit and transform “High Society”, at Abbey Road Studios no less. Bringing in one-time touring vocalist for Gorgon City, British singer Josh Barry, “Better Day” is a shiny treat of positivity, decked out in classic Nile Rodgers rhythm guitar while Josh’s soulful vocal takes it to even another level. “Better Day” is proof that you never know who is listening. Like Elton John and a few other veterans, Nile has maintained his buzz for new music and paying it forward since CHIC’s heyday 40 years ago, and as a result now we’ll be hearing a lot more new music from WH0 too.
