Sultan + Shepard throw it back to the ’80s on their newest track ‘High on Emotion’, a modern day take on Chris de Burgh’s iconic 1984 hit. The veteran producing duo employs upbeat progressive melodies and a funky drop with the original’s vocal sample to create a groove-worthy, upbeat tune.
Speaking about the track Sultan + Shepard said, “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.”
