An iconic track in its own right, Sick Individuals and Axwell’s momentous collaboration ‘I AM’ featuring US based singer/songwriter Taylr Renee turns 4 years old today since its release on the Swede’s Axtone Records. Mellifluous and featuring infectious vocals from Taylr, ‘I AM’ captured exactly what long time listeners still reminisce about the top notch releases from the last decade. Unmatched in the sheer listening pleasure that the track provided, it is a testament to its quality that the uplifting melody, pitch perfect vocal shift from California’s Taylr Renee, the iconic Axwell groove and Sick Individuals sound are probably never going to find an equal match even if they tried it altogether again.
Not only did the original make waves across radios and festival playlists across the globe, it also laid the blueprint for a steady supply of remixes from the likes of Deorro, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Nu:Tone and Jacob Plant. Its impact on the producers and sound of today also cannot be neglected as quite a few artists who are now making it big with the likes of Axtone and other such labels, cite Axwell as a source of sound and inspiration. Whatever it may be, tracks such as ‘I AM,’ at the time of release, seem to have that extra edge above the others and they sustain well within our memories because of it – cherished and beloved.
