Bondax -- a duo comprised of British youngsters Adam Kaye and George Townsend -- has released “All I See” ahead of a forthcoming full-length album that’s scheduled to drop in September. The pair has teamed up with SoulBounce favorite MNEK, who co-wrote the track with singer-songwriter Becky Hill, and which features vocals from big-voiced Tanya Lacey.
“All I See” is classified by some as future garage house, but it certainly has no shame dipping into dance-pop house classics of yesteryear, with a church organ riff that sounds suspiciously close to the one found in Crystal Waters’ “Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless).” Not that we’re complaining, of course, as “All I See” is well on its way to becoming a certified classic in its own right. Its lyrics are the embodiment of lust or heartbreak on a dance floor, depending on your interpretation. Its groove is as handclap-friendly as its melody is infectious. Its funk is fresh despite sounding familiar in a “paying homage” sort of way.
You’ll hear lots of talk of which songs will rule the summer, with many potential hits already in the ring. “All I See” has a chance to among those contenders, as its bass, energy and soul pack too much punch to be relegated to nightclubs.
