What makes this 90s banger stand out is the sheer energy and passion poured into it. Robin S and Young Grey are both at their absolute best, and you can hear how much they believe in the music they are creating. It's a reminder of the power that great music can have and the feelings it can evoke.
“Live Tonight (feat. Robin S.)” captures what it means to live and embody the nightlife as Young Grey starts the party. The sound has a distinctive late 80s/early 90s house feel, with the atmosphere adding to the neon-hued splendor. With their nods towards that classic sound, they have good company alongside revivalists like Disclosure and originators like Robin S., as she is the queen of dance music. A mixture of the classic and contemporary means that the song seems to span generations, resulting in this captivating, kaleidoscopic array of colors.
The song has a hallowed effect from the first moment. Introductions aside, they start the rest of the song as the beginning of a night out. Nothing is held back as they surrender themselves to the joys of the dance. Keeping things perfectly synced up means the lower register synthesizer hits are elegant as if sculpted. Layers are brought into the fray but get things next level with Robin's vocals. Her gospel-inspired singing draws from a lot of the styles of the 90s, with the piece having its delicacy one that stuns. The evolution of the groove has this raw, live sound to it, as the four-to-the-floor beat has additional power, allowing for the right amount of muscle.
Young Grey goes right for the visceral on the physicality of “Live Tonight (feat. Robin S.)”
