A-Trak is well known for advocating on behalf of DJing and remixing culture, so it comes as no surprise that his latest track would pay homage to a more classic style. He’s linked up with Zoofunktion on “Place On Earth,” a track that embodies the vibe of club anthems of yesteryear while still showcasing current enough sound design elements to be relevant.
The lyrics may indeed be a subtle nod to Belinda Carlisle’s 1987 hit “Heaven Is A Place On Earth” and the upbeat, warm vocal melodies evoke much of the same feelings as David Guetta and Kelly Rowland’s “When Love Takes Over” – but a distinct EDM drop endows a measure of festival appeal in the track. Trappy synth stabs overpower the rave piano of the verses, and chopped and screwed samples of the vocals are sprinkled throughout.
