In effect, the guys serve up the dreamed pop song, blending an infectious house groove with powerful hooks, underscoring their productional versatility once again with this surprising new gem. Better be “Careful What You Wish For” as Spinnin’s hit duo strikes again!
If these last years have proven anything, it’s the continuous impact of Dutch DJ/production duo Lucas & Steve among the international dance crowds. By now, the guys have gained a worldwide appeal with their high energy DJ performances at Tomorrowland’s Mainstage, Creamfields, AMF, Parookaville, Brisa Beach Party, and Airbeat One as well as continuous tours across Europe, Asia and the US, including their show at EDC Las Vegas week at Hakkasan.
Their hit productions emphasized this rise to fame, evolving from their late 10’s club hits to full fledged pop smashes, including 2020’s “Perfect” (feat. Haris), their revamp of 90’s hit “No Diggity” together with R&B icons Blackstreet, and a huge teamup with Afrojack and Dubvision for one of 2021’s biggest anthems “Anywhere With You,” currently counting over 51 million streams on Spotify alone. Earlier this year, Lucas & Steve continued this hot streak with the release of “After Midnight” (feat. Xoro), a collab with Yves V, again racking up millions of streams, suitly followed by a string of popular remixes that further strengthened their mainstage appeal.
But, while continuously referring to their club roots, Lucas & Steve also count as seasoned pop producers, now underscored once again by new single “Careful What You Wish For.” The song nicely blends deep house beats with a punchy and highly infectious chorus, emphasized by the radiant vocals of Alida, famed for her work with Alok, R3hab and LUM!X, with whom she scored the massive hit “Forget You” (with Gabry Ponte) earlier this year.
With this featuring, Alida delivers a stunning performance, reminiscing an oldschool Lady Gaga vibe, while Lucas & Steve create an impressive rhythmic section, filled to the max with ominous bass chords and inventive drum patterns. As the chorus unfolds a swirling vocal loop, the duo sets off with moody synth pads and airy chords, delivering the perfect backdrop for the melancholic spirit you get from this song. “Careful What You Wish For” resembles a next chapter in Lucas & Steve’s impressive output. A song that’s bound to work magic in radio and streaming playlists, while also sparking up excitement at this summer’s festival stages. A true singalong tune in fresh Lucas & Steve guise, it’s all you need to wish for this season.
