Walk that walk.
Talk that talk.
A grown mans game is in charge and to the point. No gimmicks, just a healthy dose of honesty peppered with seasoned sexuality. Maybe its the age, maybe its the experience, but a grown man doesnt waste his time. He gets to the point and never misses a beat.
The Master of House, Louie Vegas latest release features Cassio Ware, a familiar face in underground house music as the main vocalist. Their track Just The Way I Like It is both a story and a tutorial on seduction with strong sexual undertones. Cassio is the songs energy and movement. His sonorous spoken word narration plays big brother to Vegas sultry and bouncy production. Our protagonist has no shortage of honey words. They roll off his tongue and make tiny but consistent dents in his beautiful ladys shield of disbelief. Every word gets them closer to romance.
As far as the origin of the song, Ware shares his secret inspiration, The song was based on a true fantasy of winning the affection of a bartender at NYCs Club Cielo. She always dances behind the bar and has a lot of energy and is a crowd favorite. I speak to her from time to time at the club. I told her one day that I was going to win her affection and get her from behind the bar so we could dance. She smiled. The next day I was in the studio and reflected on that memory and that's when I started talking about the situation in the song and now the world knows.
The song eventually spirals out of control. The flurry of cross-eyed male and female back-and-forths sonically mimics two nightclub creatures whispering to each other. He whispers pleasantries. She digests them and crafts a sarcastic, yet endearing response. This is courting. This is romance. Naughtiness and tenderness intertwined so closely they lose their individual structure.
At first, Cassio is doing all the big talking, but as his attempts at seduction start to pay off, a blissful bombardment of female vocals and accompanying suggestive ad libs (performed by Heather Walker & Adrienne Sykes) takes front and center. Ecstasy. Pleasure. Sweat. Boom. Boom. Ahh. Ahh. The song reaches its peak.
As you continue listening, you cant help but hope youll one day be the the object of intense admiration. You close your eyes and your mind wanders. This is the power of music. It dissolves confines and energizes the imagination. This is the power of Louie Vegas brush. He masterminds these moments and creates intense feeling in the hearts of his fans.
Cassio explains how the collaboration came about, Vega, myself and the background vocalists on Just The Way I Like It were together in the studio. We were there to work on another song, but once I presented the concept to Vega for this current song, we got right to work and didnt leave until 7 a.m. It was a great session with ideas flowing from all over.
Cassio echoed what everyone says about spending time with Louie in the lab, With Louie, you have to be on your P's and Q's. He is a perfectionist and although we are friends, he will definitely let you know what he likes and doesn't like because he wants the best for the composition. Dont forget when you collaborate with Louie, youre part of the canvas in this exquisite painting. He will listen to certain parts over and over to make sure it is sounds perfect.
Together, Cassio and Louie have created a masterpiece for the lovers and shameless romantics. Will you join them?
