This song has been stuck in my head for a while now, and as such, it seems appropriate to make it the Song Of The Week. “Sofi Needs An Ladder” is a fucking banger. It begins deceptively, with a simple melodic rhythm that gradually builds in intensity until the song breaks – a simple four-to-the-floor house rhythm and a heavy, fat sub-bass. Minimal accents in just the right places flesh out the backing track. deadmau5’s production is excellent without a doubt, but what makes the track really stand out is guest vocalist Sofi. Lyrically the song is nothing special – singing about hook-ups is commonplace. Yet her presentation is slightly robotic and otherworldly, which fits the mood of the production exquisitely. This song absolutely crushes – spin at your parties and rage all night.
