Michael Jackson’s Xscape featuring previously unreleased music from the late King of Pop and is set to be released on the 13th May. The album has almost brought Jackson back from the dead, we can’t seem to escape him!
However, there is some confusion over the legitimacy of the album. Jackson’s family have questioned whether a soundalike sang on some of the songs and Dave Grohl stated that he didn’t play on the track that he is credited on as a drummer. Will.I.Am has also stated that he wouldn’t release any of the unfinished songs the two wrote together because he knows Michael wouldn’t want the world to hear the incomplete music.
Enter Fedde Le Grand. This EDM giant has put is dance-touch on what he considers “one of the biggest and most honorable projects I was ever asked to work on.” He mixed the single Love Never Felt So Good from Xscape and it is one of the best tributes to Michael, recovering the blunder that was the album.
His set was featured BBC1’s Dance Anthems with Danny Howard, with immaculate synth-work that builds up to an explosion of party beats and pop vibes resonant of Jackson’s work.
