While many in the Booth gave Nina Sky‘s most recent solo feature, ‘80s remake You Ain’t Got It (Funk That), a thumbs-up, there were others who found the retro retread a little ho-hum. If you’re still waiting on proof that Natalie and Nicole Albino have some fresh new ideas up their collective sleeve, look no further than new EP leak Only You (Take Me Away). One of the most original club-oriented cuts I’ve heard in a minute, this track finds producer Double O of Kidz in the Hall superimposing synths and upbeat percussion over an intricate, off-kilter keyboard riff as the Puerto Rican-bred duo pay tribute to a fella who’s like no other. On the back end, Kidz frontman Naledge takes center stage, directing some flirtatious game-spitting toward the twins as well as punnily name-dropping another Booth-approved twosome: “It’s you ‘n’ I, no Y-O, Thurzday.” Craving more? We’ve got you covered – Nina Sky’s DJBooth.net-sponsored The Other Side EP is scheduled to hit our mixtape page “soon.”
