Candi Staton - Hallelujah Anyway - Various Mixes

Its easy in todays EDM world to forget a part of the roots of vocal house were founded in Gospel. Religious or not there is a sense of euphoria in the sweeping uplifting tones and melodies in Gospel music that blend extremely well with House music. Candi Staton who's roots are founded in Gospel hit the disco world with the hit record Young Hearts, Run Free (which came out the year I was born WOW!) has been dancing in and out of the dance music world for decades. Finally back on the forefront she, along with Frankie Knuckles, Larse & Defected records brings us a new anthem for those that miss that throwback vibe in House music.

Hallelujah Anyway offers up soaring vocals with a quiet comfort that can make you feel like the only person on the dancefloor with a flood of people around you. Offered up along with that is a dub that will create a somber mood in the crowd and its great for those afterhours/sunrise/Ibiza inspired pool music sets. Below I will link you all to the Larse vocal version as well as the dub, enjoy!
