It's been a few years since Nelly Furtado said she was a bird. Call her a Falcons fan 'cause she's more like a dirty bird, now. The Canadian songstress tossed aside her acoustic guitar for a grittier beat a while ago, collaborating with numerous hip-hop artists and eventually landing herself square in the dance remix hotseat. Now New Jersey's KDrew
is no stranger to the pop music scene, being himself discovered by Timbaland's team and whipping up some major dance versions of mainstream hits. But his take on Furtado's "Parking Lot" is a marvel in dance fervor. Raging electro beats give way to a moderately dubby breakdown, which then takes a huge left turn into moombah madness. For middle America, this kind of tune would be the perfect introduction to the dance music scene for a general pop audience who has no idea raves still exist. Or were in diapers when the cops shut them down back in the late 90's. Either way, KDrew's success as a producer is about to translate directly into some pop icon status. Bet your bottom dollar, birdie.
