David Guetta Featuring Sia – She Wolf (Original Mix) + Remixes
While their current team-up, Titanium, continues to devour radios and storm clubs around the world David Guetta clambers to maintain global domination with a new release. She Wolf (Falling To Pieces) featuring Sia marks the return of collaborative efforts between Mr. Guetta and Australian singer Sia. The track plays to formula and accompanies Sia’s glossy heartfelt vocals with a graceful synth hook and melodic piano: a mostly triumphant yet generic attempt at winning over mainstream audiences around the world and insuring another radio juggernaut.
Produced to go down easy and lodge itself in your mind, alongside other forgettable radio gems like Calvin Harris feat. Ne-Yo – Let’s Go; the track is a dance ready crowd pleaser brought-to-you-by the Guetta dance music machine. At this point in time why do Guetta tracks require a radio edit? He is currently ranked the number one DJ in the world by DJ Magazine and he is one of music’s most sought out producers, he should be free to indulge in his roots.
When Guetta released the deluxe edition of Nothing But The Beat it came with a bonus ‘electro’ CD of which he commented: “This is me being more personal, and honest. The tracks are a way for me to be true to myself and also share my culture with more people who may not have experienced it.”
This being said, the best part of She Wolf is when an electro’fied Guetta beat kicks in about halfway through the radio edit. Within an instant almost all is forgiven, and because of this I recommend the tracks extended cut.While She Wolf is far from Guetta’s best it is still worth a listen. I can only hope that Guetta’s future releases allow him more room for artistic creativity because the time has come for change.
The remix EP is currently also available on Beatport, including takes on the track from Sandro Silva, who’s remix has hints of his ‘epic’ track with Quintino lodged in but still brings it’s own original flare to the song. Also, Michael Calfan’s remix of the track offers a little bit more of an uptempo vibe, creating a perfect alternative sound to the original.
