‘Fancy Dancer’ comes next, and starts off with a stunning orchestral sounding vibe; a very deep four-to-the-floor beat pumps the energy up, as a sample of a classical piece by Vivaldi stars as a main character in this track, the groovy bass keeps the party feeling up while the now chopped sample adds a playful layer to this high-energy song that’s perfect to dance to.
