Best I Can Do

This dreamy slab of vocal resplendence from Sonar Kollektiv cohort Michael Beim, aka Skwerl, presents one of those arresting moments in house music, moments that have the power to bring together years of the genre's evolution into a single groove, acknowledging of its influences yet still totally forward-facing. Featuring a devastating vocal performance from Paul Randolph (Detroit native and collaborator with the likes of Amp Fiddler, Carl Craig, Recloose and Moodymann), Best I Can Do has the audacity to sound like a classic already, in the vein of male house vocal tracks Raze's 'Break 4 Love' or Round Two's heart-melting 'New Day'. It's not quite as good as either yet, but one day it just might be.
