We think we’ve officially lost count of the number of wondrous ways in which Mister Steve Anderson has impacted our lives musically over the years. From his days as part of the sublime Brothers In Rhythm (and THOSE remixes), to Kylie’s Deconstruction albums (still up there with our favourite Kylie LPs even now), Britney Spears’ anthemic ‘Breathe On Me’ from ‘In The Zone’ (why was this not a single?) – not to mention those insanely good megamixes in each Kylie show (we bow before you, kind sir…).
But if that wasn’t enough, earlier this year Steve introduced us to what could possibly be our favourite pop album of the year thus far; ‘Prismophonic’, by French singer Christophe Willem.
Though we’re not anywhere near fluent in French (un petit peu), the LP is one of “those” pop albums – filled with killer tunes that sound good in any language, steered masterfully by Mister Anderson’s guiding pop production hand.
Though the French have been lapping it up since late last year, it’s now turn for the rest of us to get our chops around it, with single ‘Starlight’ being given the English language treatment.
And besides Steve Anderson on the job, there are four other words that go some way to describing why this is one of our favourite songs of 2012; Freemasons. Chaka Khan sample.
You know you want to.
