Not more than a day following Barack Obama’s election as the 44th president of the United States I noticed that Orlando Voorn had uploaded a new track into his myspace player called “Yes We Can.” I thought it was inevitable that it would happen as I had already thought about layering part of Obama’s acceptance speech in an upcoming mix, but I didn’t think it would happen this quickly. And now it’s already fully finished, mastered and available on Juno Download here. Not sure what label if any it’s affiliated with but I’m pleased to see that the Obama’s election has inspired creativity at such a hurried pace. It’s a great track that sums up Obama’s creed using bits of recent speech sound bites and massive crowd response that heightens the track’s visceral energy flow. Unlike Will.I.Am’s earlier celeb lifted folkie effort, this track celebrates Obama’s victory with a brightened techno charge that matches the inspirational nature of the moment it captures. Can we? Yes, we can. And we did. America finally has a reason to be proud again.
