The Isley Brothers – Prize Possession (Follow Me Remix)

Sanctuary
Is what you are to me
Yeah
No dictionary
Can find the words to say
How much I love you.”

I start this post like the Isley Brothers start their classic. The lyrics to this song couldn’t paint a clearer picture of the kind of particular situation one has to find oneself in before dedicating it to someone. Follow Me has from the start earned my respect for the stuff he has put out. But the last couple of remixes (see our post that covered his amazing TLC remix a month ago) are nothing short of spectacular.

A steady beat, those echoed synth chords and the handclaps by themselves foreshadow that what is about to come is big. You can feel this even before hearing the first vocals on the song. I love it how Follow Me’s remixes are right on top of that thin line between songs you can hear and enjoy and ones you can dance to. The BPM and the groove in his remixes has enough oomph to get you going and you feel that you can barely dance to it. Clocking at 3:42 I wish there was an extended edit or something because it’s too good to end so fast. After much internal debate on what where the best words to describe this song in one sentence, I came to the same conclusion I did before. The first thing I said to myself the first time I heard it is the last thing I’m gonna leave you with: “This is fucking golden!”.
