Though the discussion about what the next full-fledged trend in dance music will be often ends up in dispute, there's no denying that the appeal to revive the classic style of house music is strong at this point in time. Whether it's the fact that people are starting to get burnt out with the festival-filling progressive house sound, or the fact that more producers are focusing their talent on making less-aggressive house music- both old (like the former dubstep vanguard Skream) and new (like the fresh-faced duo Disclosure)- the supply of subtle-yet-significant house music is expanding, so it could be a matter of time before the demand expands as well.
With the aforementioned Skream and Disclosure hailing from the UK, it seems that the new wave in classic house production popularity is occurring in the UK (probably because their time-zone is five hours ahead of the US), and the newcoming house producer, Davidian, also hails from across the pond. With only a couple of years in the production game, the 22-year-old Nottingham resident has put his musical touch on songs from Destiny's Child, The Wombats and MØ, and recently, he released a new single, “What I Want,” which had been signed by the prevalent French label, Kitsuné, and has received support from Skream & Benga, as well as Rob da Bank of Radio 1.
Despite the fact that “What I Want” was produced by someone born in the 90s, the song is an almost-six-minute trip back to the 80s era of house music. The bass is smooth and easy-going, while the treble groove is the element in the driver's seat (never underestimate the power of a tambourine). Deep house Synth plucks and warm synthetic strings are soon juxtaposed by dark synth swells to give the song a bit of bite, and featured vocalist Tiffani Juno provides vocals that properly emulate the soul/disco essence present in the early generation of house.
