BabyGirl might be young, but ‘The Rite Place’, her newest track, the Indie Dance/Nu Disco-tinged groover speaks of sophistication and high quality. But the Sacha Robotti remix that comes along is also a heater! When you look at the fact that this Los Angeles artist is at the same time a singer, songwriter, DJ, producer, and founder of the music label Zone64, you quickly realize why it is so. It is a snappy, sparsely produced dance floor filler with BabyGirl’s silky, multi-tracked vocals, excellent guitar work, and understated keyboards that drive the song quickly through its moves. Some big sophisticated Eighties disco acts like Kid Creole & The Coconuts would be proud of this one. In the end, the only thing you are bound to do is press that ‘repeat’ button.
BabyGirl’s ‘The Rite Place’ is so good that it deserves all four remixes it received from DJ Sneak, Sacha Robotti, Vice Cooler, and Blakkat. Sacha Robotti, who we featured not only once but twice this year, shows all his remixing skills. He takes the track Tech House way with floor shuttering thump and electronic handclaps, with BabyGirl giving softly-spoken direction before her vocals start playing with that thump, your downstairs neighbors might not exactly be fond of too much. But your dancing instinct certainly will.
It is really hard to say, which version of BabyGirl’s ‘The Rite Place’ deserves more play, the original Indie Dance/Nu Disco mix, or Sacha Robotti’s Tech House remix. Maybe the best solution is to alternate them one right after the other. Still, there is no chance you will get bored at any point. Hopefully, more from both of these artists are on the way.
