Mary Mary
Shackles [Praise You] (Dennis Kruissen Remix)

After what was a fairly heavy weekend of darker, more Halloween appropriate sets on the dancefloor for this writer, we thought what better way to pace our Monday morning than with a bit of soulful, classic leaning house music from Amsterdam’s Dennis Kruissen. Taking Mary Mary‘s “Shackles [Praise You]”, Kruissen chose an absolutely fitting vocal to tip his production hat to the genre defining house records emanating from Chicago in the mid 80’s to early 90’s. Mary Mary’s booming and expressive reverberations get wrapped up in a tightly spun grand piano line, further establishing the tune’s new-age taste of time-honored dance arrangement; while the popping garagey synth progression slides front and center, hooking its listener with a simple arpeggiated loop. This one has us scooting all over the office today, so if house and dance fit into your listening repertoire, do yourself a solid and hit play above.
