No need fi go down

294. Enur ft. Nastasja - "Calabria 2007" (Ultra Records, 2007)

In the Bronx (in most of NYC), the spring and summer of 2007 were controlled (judging by the all important "songs blasting out of cars criteria") by "Umbrella". This spring, the juggernaut of "Lollipop" (and later all of the Carter III) was the undisputed winner. In between, the ruler wasn't as clear, but this song has as good of a claim as any. It took me about a year to figure out what it was called and who made it, but now that I have, Christ, I can't stop listening to it. Apparently, this is about the billionth version of a house song released by Rune in 2003. Now, however, it is a house/dancehall/reggeaton monster, with killer vocals by the Danish Nastasja and the saxophone riff has been stuck in my head for about 8 months now. I want a party I can play this at NOW!

And it's just now appearing in a Target commercial that celebrates the dorm room bonding power of a balls out dance off. This could jumpstart a whole new wave of trunk rattling.
