Single Review: Tyson - 'Die On The Dancefloor' - Released February 20th 2012


Tyson’s new single ‘Die On The Dancefloor’ is set to be released on the 20th February 2012. He has been making waves on the underground music scene with his electro disco beats filling out the dance floors. Tyson Speede is no stranger to the music scene – he comes from the popular three-piece group ‘Unklejam’ and is now attempting to carve out a career as a solo artist.

I am not a huge fan of the new single ‘Die On The Dancefloor’. There is a certain ‘Scissor Sisters’ feel to it with a strong electro dance vibe running through. The vocals are sung completely in high falsetto with a distorted chorus effect, and mainly seem to repeat the same lyrics over and over. There is no mistaking that it intends to bring back the disco movement but I’m not sure the world is ready for this just yet. I suppose it’s club music not necessarily intended for home listening and there is always a place for this kind of stuff in the industry. However, it doesn’t excite me, get me wanting to move and unfortunately seems easily forgettable.

Tyson has done well with getting four separate remix versions together to try and give alternate movements. However, these also fail to raise the standard, instead sounding very similar one another and not exploring the different directions in which the track could be taken. The best by far is the MICKEY Remix – it has a strong pulse beat and is somehow more uplifting than the others.

Maybe it’s just not my thing but try as I might it fails to rock my world…
