One of my personal favorite underrated Ciara grooves (well, besides all of them) is “Overdose,” a synth-fully delicious number from her (oh, so vastly overlooked) self-titled 2013 album. Decorated with a brilliant pop production style that shifts Ms. CiCi away from her more contemporary R&B sound and into a predominantly pop-orientated vocal werk, the gritty, grimy groove plays out to absolute trunk rattling perfection….especially on warm weathered days like today.
While “Overdose” (for some f#$king reason…sigh) wasn’t given the proper radio credit it still absolute deserves, at least deep house guru Pascal Junior recognized its brilliance and sampled a few elements of the banger when he transformed them into a ferocious, fiery ditty that takes the original to new levels of dance music ecstasy. While it certainly can’t complete with CiCi’s fine tuned version, it comes pretty damn close and is certainly the perfect banger to bump as we begin to get into weekend formation.
Get lost in both takes below and Philly Mixtape will see everyone on Monday. Oh, and get ready. That’s all.
