“Can’t Resist” by @we_are_Halogen is lyrical dance music at its best featuring @AdrianaxxGomez and @lubxtpf

HALOGEN featuring ADRIANA GOMEZ & lub x tpf, “Can’t Resist” (free DL)

It’s been awhile since we heard from Atlanta-based duo Halogen after some originals and remixes last year, most notably their take on The Disco Fries’ “Born Ready”.  After a bit of a break, Alex and Josh return with a pretty dance song that’s performed in what I call a classic duet framework by Adriana Gomez and lub x tpf (aka Lub from the Porch Family).  It’s a moving, lyrical dance song that has a lot of fine lyrics, dreamy vocals, and inspired production amid its 3+ minutes.  I’m pointing this out because you don’t hear songs performed like this in the dance/EDM world, let alone as a deep house song; they are generally collaborations or sing-and-callback vocals.  This is where the fusion of pop and dance really happens, as it did back in 70’s disco days.  I’m not sure if this is where Halogen intended to take “Can’t Resist” but listeners should pick up on the differences when they’re not dancing away.  Released through Cloud Kid’s house, you can get it as a free download at the link above for now.
