Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello & Alesso – Eclipse (Why Am I Doing This)?

This song reminds me of Mobb Deep. Not musically, as it has absolutely nothing in common with gangster rap from Queensbridge, but my favourite Mobb Deep song is Quiet Storm – and that’s a fitting description for Sebastian Ingrosso’s latest offering. The whole track sounds very controlled, almost restrained at times – in spite of the fact that it only takes thirty seconds for a dirty, wobbly base line to kick in. Don’t get me wrong, it has all the components of a Swedish House Mafia anthem (even with Axwell missing from the production): build ups, synth samples and some serious drops. However, compared to Swedish House Mafia’s latest track Greyhound, which makes you want to dance like there is no tomorrow, this is less, well, enthusiastic. Pretty sure that it’s a good song to run to, although in fairness the voice sample of a disillusioned-sounding guy asking ‘Why am I doing this?’ every thirty seconds is not exactly a motivation booster, is it?
