When Elderbrook and Camelphat’s Cola first surfaced last year, I immediately labelled it as one of the year’s best electronic tracks, even though we weren’t close to halfway through 2017 yet. Cola has since been nominated for a Grammy for best dance/electronic track, and we’ll be finding out in a few short hours if Elderbrook and Camelphat get to snag that trophy for their incredible electronic masterpiece. It seems only fitting that we cheer them on and celebrated Cola with this brilliant remix by who else, but magnificent ZHU. He gives Cola the trademark ZHU workover, a visceral pumping, torrid smoldering deep house styled edit, permeated with slick buttery cooing. Cola has never been more sexy. The remix is out now on Big Beat. Stream/download, here, then tune in to the Grammys tonight to root for the original. London based multi-instrumentalist and producer Elderbrook will be headlining Popscene in San Francisco on February 15th next month. It’s a can’t miss show, and I can’t wait to dance to Cola. Tickets and more info can be found, here.

I’ve actually been searching for a proper stream of this phenomenal tune for close to two weeks. Back when it first surfaced, the only option available tor sharing was a BBC Radio Hottest Record rip, and Cola is far too fantastic a song to share it in that muddles, low quality state. London based singer songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Elderbrook recently teamed up with production buzz makers CamelPhat (Whelan & Di Scala) on mesmeric thrumming Cola. It’s a lush swelling, moody gripping masterpiece saturated with lavishly entrancing percussion. Elderbrook’s infectious vocals lure us in with a rhythmic lilt reminiscent of Crystal Fighters and other indie/alt dance bands, but dropped in a luscious garage soundscape much like Jamie xx crossed with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Cola is a jaw dropping collaboration and one of the year’s best electronic tracks I’ve encountered. Grab it from iTunes, here.
