Song of the Day: CocknBullKid - "Asthma Attack"

By April 18, 2011

Follow me on:

For anyone who is not familiar with CocknBullKid, she is a heavy-set black British woman with a penchant for uplifting disco pop and not anything else.  While her stage name may be misleading, it is easy to forget just how much so when you listen to the effervescent "Asthma Attack".  The track is so buoyant and giddy that within seconds, you will be bopping along.  This is one of the most exciting new releases in a while based simply on how easy it is to get lost in it.  You want to sing along with her, dance along with her random backup dancers (watch the video to understand), and most importantly, you want to sympathize with her.  For those who want "Asthma Attack" on their floors, WAWA and Soundforce have helped out with a couple club-ready remixes.  WAWA builds on the original, adding more oomph than anything else.  Soundforce change the direction of the track to more pure house, ditching the elements of the original that WAWA decided to keep.  Both work nicely and her voice still sounds excellent, but the original stands as the best version of the song.  Get familiar with "Asthma Attack" this Spring.  And hopefully not because of allergies.

What has being heavy set or black got to do with her music this is just a stupid thing to point out.Her music is varied and so are the topics she writes about.Maybe open your eyes and take the blinkers off.
