The debut single from the Swedish House Mafia "One" rocketed to the top of the Beatport chart because of an apparent early leak of the track. The well-known team of Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello constructed the epic bigroom track which is a mix of tech and electro with enough interesting noises and groove changes to make it memorable. The low-key vocal part by Pharrell isn't as memorable and seems to be more of a last minute addition tacked on in hopes of hip hop credibility and commercial crossover. Then again maybe that's the point as the original is so massive, it really didn't need a big vocal on top of. For a better Pharrell collaboration, check out the new NERD track with Nelly Furtado "Hot-N-Fun."
