BLVD. has become synonymous with gritty and hard-hitting bass music, but he switches gears to some quality house music on his new rework of “Turn The Beat Around,” originally released in 1976 by Vicki Sue Robinson and later covered by Gloria Estefan in 1994. The bass maestro brings a modern, electronic perspective to a classic party anthem, keeping the integrity of the original’s disco vibes–from the vinyl quality of the sound to the familiar tune that generations of dance fans have grown up with. The fresh take comes with an infusion of groovy house, including a deep, bouncy drop that still feels raw and dancefloor-friendly. BLVD.‘s version is the late-night, shuffling, booty-shaking version of our parents’ favorite track. It follows BLVD.‘s recent big collaborations on Purple Fly – with Shaquille O’Neal, Fatman Scoop, and Laidback Luke.
