scholar – Lovin You

-scholar

The finest electronic tracks often sample an earlier hit song, and such is the case with scholar‘s latest effort, “Lovin You.” The Brisbane-based production duo consisting of Luke Cuerel and Nick Kirk claim they “were looking for a more upbeat, sample driven follow up to [their] last single ‘Daylight,’ something a bit bigger with bright, lush tones.”

Settling on Strike‘s ’90s smash dance single “U Sure Do” for the sample — a track which actually draws from a Donna Allen song — “Lovin You” replaces the original uptempo dance beat with with a blissed out, synth-washed tropical soundscape. The exquisite end result is a lesson on sampling done right. Stream below and download the track for free on scholar’s Soundcloud.
