There’s something to be said for senselessly repeated phrases in American club music and while I can’t exactly back it up with a cultural studies lexicon of terms and theories, I can say that it has become one of the defining features of the Baltimore, New Orleans Jersey and Chicago sounds. On it’s own, a repeated Big Sean line is annoying to the point of inflicting self-harm, but in the context of DJ Kiff’s remix of Planet Rock’s “Sarah Palin” it takes on new, hypnotizing function. Vocal repetition might not offer any deeper meaning into life, but it often makes for damn effective dance music. Stream Kiff’s remix below and cop a free download here.
It was clear from the day it was released that Ciara’s Mike Will produced “Body Party” was a perfect candidate for the Jersey Club treatment and certified Brick Bandit DJ Kiff has stepped up to the plate. The formula is simple and fine-tuned for a track like “Body Party” as bed springs, and that signature Jersey bounce accentuate Ciara’s vocal performance and Mike Will’s chords to perfection.
