Utah Saints Vs. Drumsound & Bassline Smith – What Can You Do For Me

When Utah Saints released their re-worked version of Something Good in 2008, it felt like a fitting tribute to one of the real greats of 90s dance music. The remix was well crafted, respectful and received an insane amount of airplay from Radio 1.
And in a way, the resurrected version of What Can You Do For Me plays to similar aims – it targets the sound of ‘now’ with unerring precision; welding on dub-step wobble-bass left, right and centre. But here, the results feel largely tacky, a rushed over-frenetic burst of clubland commerciality. Current it may be, but this time Utah Saints seem to have fallen prey to the old adage of just too many cooks in the kitchen.
What Can You Do For Me is released on the 27th February
