Sessomatto ft. Carolyn Harding - Movin’ On


Many are the things we here at Beatz By the Pound never tire of, when adequately deployed—a radiant sunrise after an exhausting night of dancing; that sound that goes whap-whap and the one that goes wrrw-wrrw-wrrw; the first bars of our summer jam being mixed into whatever is playing right now; a little bump of something to get us through the night; a diva vocal with gospel touches telling us something great about “our love.” All of which stand and deliver during the course of Joey Negro’s 2006 Sessomatto single (and aforementioned summer jam) “Movin’ On.” I’m all for beardy meanderings, minimal midnight assignations and space-disco dust, but come four in the morning I want a song exactly like this one—crazy peaks and valleys cranny-crammed with every trick that’s worked a thousand times on a thousand house twelves and enough collective upliftment to raise a boat full of ravers to the top of Mt. Etna. Call me old-fashioned.
