It’s been six years since We No Speak Americano climbed to the top of the charts and had the nation dancing to both a song and video that were completely nonsensical, but catchy. 2011’s The Inbetweeners Movie saw the track emerge once again, but it’s since been respected as a classic dance track. Well, now, Yolanda Be Cool and DCUP are back with another dance track – From Me to You.
Straight away, I fell in love with the saxophone melody at the centre of this song. The last summer track to pull it off was Klingande’s Jubel, which was of a more laid-back style. Now, with uplifting piano stabs, From Me to You is a different type of electronic music – a type where the main melody sounds like it belongs in a level of Mario Kart. It’s about time that a chilled dance track incorporated some jazz elements. At the moment, we’ve seen so much tropical house and funk music that this single really is uplifting in a variety of ways.
Granted, it’s a significant change from We No Speak Americano, but if anything, this release shows that they can once again contribute something big to the current music industry. It’s a shame that this track hasn’t been recognised as much as it should – despite being released in March – but I hope that From Me to You gets some airplay over the summer.
