Miranda Nicole ‘Dance Like You’ve Been Here’
If it weren’t for the four walls around you, pressing play on Miranda Nicole’s “Dance Like You’ve Been Here” would make you think the warm breeze and brilliance of the ocean were steps away.
NDATL chief and masterful producer Kai Alce takes you there with a perfectly lush arrangement. Nicole’s voice is already a butterfly of sorts — beautiful and multifaceted — and as such, this dancefloor number is doubly ethereal. You’ll want to catch it.
Showing the sweet side of Nicole’s GlamSoul movement, she and Alce team up for this easily danceable, heavily melodic tune that’s at once a steady stepper and sweat maker.
The DJ Beloved remix is more tribal, pushing back and switching up the vocals a bit, but bringing forward the percussion for an added drive. It beckons you to “dance hard,” just as Nicole calls you to do.
Toss aside any reservations and be transported. After all, when Osunlade heard a demo and immediately put it into rotation — followed by other heavy-hitters such as Louie Vega, Moodymann, Ian Friday and Phil Asher — that’s exactly what crowds worldwide have experienced.
“Dance Like You’ve Been Here” is available now on vinyl here on NDATL
