- Miracle (Body Rock)
Crosstown Rebels | 12.07.2019
Having just announced his first solo Ibiza residency, Dance or Die, Nic Fanciulli continues his impressive run of form with a long awaited debut on Crosstown Rebels. Titled Miracle (Body Rock), the two track release includes a stunning remix from esteemed UK talent Paul Woolford.
“I made ‘Miracle’ around a year ago I think; after a few months of tweaking and playing the record out last summer, I started to get a lot of requests for it. Damian and I have been friends for a long time, and we’d been wanting to do something together on Crosstown for a while, and this just seemed to make sense. Add in a killer remix from the legend Paul Woolford (another long-term friend of mine), and I think the package turned out pretty well! You’ll be hearing this track a lot this summer!” Nic Fanciulli.
Beginning things in fine form is Nic Fanciulli’s original Miracle (Body Rock). Whispering percussion combines with the subtle plucking of guitar strings, as echoing vocals are layered underneath soft, moving pads to create a well-rounded, moving number. Paul Woolford’s Endless Bassline remix comes next. Stuttering hi-hats provide rhythm as the titular rolling bassline chugs on, whilst toneful piano keys merge with reverberating, soulful vocals. Unique, yet staying true to the original, the addition of distorted claps helps create the perfect dancefloor cut; but it is the re-singing of Jomanda’s ‘Make My Body Rock’ vocals that links both tracks in a moving, emotive fashion.
