Last year, my favorite remix of the year was the explosive Cahill redo of Zendaya’s gummy groove, “Replay.” Not only does this tantalizing trio’s rewire of Ms. Z’s hit take the original to blissful new music heights, but it truly proves that they’ve got it in the bag when it comes to creating delicious dance thunderstorms. However, that’s only the tip- of- the -laptop when it comes to this explosive UK dance production trio. So on that replayed beat, let’s get our “Rewerk Wednesday” on, shall we?
Hailing from their music mother Adele’s homeland, Cahill consists of three pulsating DJ/producers-Anton Powers, Tim Condran and Scott Rosser. The trio first joined forces ’07, teaming up with soul seductress Nikki Belle, recording the titanic track, “Trippin On You.” While the song got off to a fine start throbbing in Liverpool nightclubs, it soon wound up on global dance charts everywhere, and the rest is heart pumping music history.
After the success of “Trippin,” the dynamic trio recorded two more funkdafied firestorms with Ms. Belle, “Sex Shooter” and “Crush On You,” which would then lead them to remixing some of the hottest names in the music game-Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Enrique Iglesias and Selena Gomez, just to name a few. Cahill even collaborated with now defunct former ‘AI’ diva, Kimberly Locke on a delectable dittie called, “Feel The Love,” even providing their own remix, transforming it into a slice of pure disco heaven.
If I had to pick out my favorite Cahill reworks, we would basically be here for hours. Looking in my music vault, at the top of my list would be their rewiring of Alexis Jordan’s(BIG sigh…) cheeky hit, “Hush, Hush,” their soaring take on Mariah’s “Obsessed,” and any one of their five remixes they’ve served up for Nicole Scherzingers’ almost-there-but-not-quite-maimstream solo hits will do just fine.
However, if I had to absolutely pick out my favorite reworked Cahill opus, it would be their torching of the smash Agnes(another…BIG…sigh) track, “Release Me.” However, don’t take my headphones for it, Ms. Agnes’ heart wrenching groove only kicks off a luscious list of lively reworked wonders brought to you by Cahill. Dive in.
