For “SADESFAKSHEN”, DBN Gogo and Thuto The Human’s latest collaborative single, the two producers give an electrifying new life to iconic EDM DJ and producer Benny Benassi’s 2002 hit “Satisfaction”, a song that has refused to go away and has soundtracked different generations across the globe.
For “SADESFAKSHEN”, the original song is slowed down and its buzzing synths are embelished with Amapiano’s log drum and Bacardi-style drums resulting in a refreshing marriage of old school EDM with ‘piano that deserves a space on your heavy-rotation playlist.
Nostalgia isn’t the only thing “SADESFAKSHEN” has going for it, however.
Even though the original vocals remain, they are accompanied by authentic South African adlibs (“Heeey, hey! Heeey, hey!”) that live in the background to remind the world of Amapiano’s place of birth and spread South Africa’s vibrant culture across the world.
As Amapiano continues to dominate the global stage, a song like “SADESFAKSHEN” ensures the genre’s presence is felt on every dance floor from Ga-Rankuwa to Lagos, London, New York, and Milan.
With dramatic build-ups and banging beat drops, “SADESFAKSHEN” is an addictive piece of music that just begs for the repeat button and, of course, that spot on your heavy-rotation playlist. It will give you that satisfaction!
