Sultan + Shepard Bring Plenty of 80’s Nostalgia in "High On Emotion"

Man, if these first two singles are any indication of how awesome the album will be, then we are primed and ready. Starting out weekend right we have “High on Emotion”, the latest from our boys Sultan + Shepard over on Armada. Over the years these two have gently crafted their career as one of the most notable partnerships in the modern electronic music industry. This has led to numerous collaborations with major powerhouses such as David Guetta, Tiesto, Dillon Francis, but also monumentally successful pop artists such as Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga, and Coldplay. Just to serve as icing on the cake, Sultan + Shepard have received numerous nominations for their craft. These two know how to make electronic music.

“This song really brings back a special vibe for us. It’s about having fun and partying, but also the simple fact that you can experience really euphoric emotions when going out. We were inspired by the sound of the late 90’s and early 2000’s in house music, things like the French Touch sound and early Electro House. The culture of flipping old records has been going on forever and it really is one of favorite things to do. The idea that you can take a rock record from the 80’s and turn it into a club banger is so fun to us.”  – Sultan + Shepard

Damn, Sultan + Shepard are back with yet another throwback to the 80s. “High On Emotion” is S+S’s take on the original 1984 version by Chris de Burgh, which is just showcasing how far the club scene has come since.  The duo works with the original vocal sample and adds just a few progressive beats and just the right amount of funk its way to spice it up with modern flair. Easily put, “High On Emotion” is filled with so much nostalgia that younger and older electronic music fans will just eat it right up.
