BEST NEW TRACKS: KAV VERHOUZER - SHOT MY LOVE DOWN
Kav Verhouzer’s “Shot My Love Down” is deep house music with a hint of soul. We Are The Guard first discovered Kav last summer when the Dutch DJ and producer released “Get What You Came For,” and this new beat has just the same kind of undeniable feel-good vibrations that would turn even the biggest electronic hater into a lover.
KAV VERHOUZER - SHOT MY LOVE DOWN
Out on Sony Music’s European imprint, Epic Amsterdam, “Show My Love Down” has lyrics all about rejection, but that’s really where any negativity ends. Even if featured artist MODD sings, “The heart's collecting dust / And our love was fake / Desire crushing trust / You’re a liar, not a lover,” it’s really the instrumentals that make this song— it’s positive with punchy saxophone work underneath impressive vocal range.
The fun vibes that emanate are no doubt infectious. It’ll pump you up and keep you there, but there is no abrasive synth work or heavy bass that can turn some of the older crowd away. It’s kind of impossible to not enjoy the track. It’s just pleasant for the ear and hits all the right notes to lift you up. It has enough gusto to even potentially get the wheelchair-bound elderly to spin.
