Review: 2 Brothers On The 4th Floor Feat. Des’Ray And D-Rock – Come Take My Hand (Extended Version) (House)

This review covers the euro house track 2 Brothers On The 4th Floor Feat. Des’Ray And D-Rock – Come Take My Hand (Extended Version).

The track was released in 1995 as part of a single.

The track starts with a chime melody and synth string. From there, female vocals go through the main chorus. A piano then comes in as the main chorus is repeated. A snare roll then comes in.

From there, a synth and bassline comes in. The rest of the drum kit then comes in. From there, the vocals take the track through the main chorus again. When the vocals repeat the main chorus, a piano then comes in.

After this, male vocals come in, rapping out a verse. This is backed by the drum kit and bassline. After that, the synth string and chime melody comes in. The female vocals repeat the main chorus. On repeat, the piano makes a return. This section is capped off with a synth melody.

From there, the rapping male vocals return. This is backed by the drum kit and bassline again. The female vocals then take over in the manner heard before. After a snare roll, the main synth comes in with the drum kit largely dropped. From there, the bassline drops out. After a snare roll and some cymbals, the track then ends.

One good thing about this track is the main synth melody that comes in on the later parts of the track. This does nicely offset the vocal elements.

Another positive is the rap and singing dynamics going on. I do like that there are not only two styles, but more than one gender providing the vocals. This gives the track an additional interesting dynamic.

My problem with this track is that the lyrics are a bit on the cliche side for me. In addition to this, so much of it is basically a repeat throughout the track.

Overall, this is a decent enough track. There are a number of interesting elements such as the dynamics between male rap vocals and female singing vocals. The main synth melody is also quite interesting. Unfortunately, the lyrics lean towards the cliche side of things. Still, it’s a decent enough track.
