Review: Sigala & Digital Farm Animals – ‘Only One’


A fun, cheesy, Galantis-style electronic hit.

  • 8

It’s rare to find an artist who consistently has hit after hit, yet, after reaching the top the charts with debut track ‘Easy Love,’ Sigala has provided a sequence of consecutively successful singles. All sharing a theme of summery, tropically-influenced house, he delivers traditionally very upbeat, positive, and what I’d describe (and not in a degrading way, mind) as harmless, enjoyable tracks, and his new release sees him teams up with fellow British producer Digital Farm Animals, a rising artist who I’m hoping will have a big year in 2017 and whose recent Cash Cash collaboration ‘Millonaire’ brought him into the limelight in the world of fun, over-synthed electro house.

It’s very clear that ‘Only One’ is the result of a proper collaboration. It takes matters a bit easier on the ridiculously upbeat tropical sounds of Sigala’s previous work, and instead presents a brilliantly cheesy no-nonsense Eurodance-inspired electronic sound that does retain those trademark breaks and builds that have made his work successful thus far. Admittedly, you need to be in a certain mood to listen to this song: open to not taking things seriously and facing the reality that it does have a certain Galantis-style novelty to it. Yet, after the amazing year they’ve had, that’s surely no bad thing, making this a track I can see very easily working it’s way into being a commercial success and certainly a club floor-filler.
