Walk into a gentlemanÔÇÖs club on any given night and the smell of weathered flesh, moist undergarments and trafficked dollar bills stab through the smokey atmosphere. Feel the bass rattling the dimpled leather couches and soak in the scene as dimly lit statues float in slow motion across raised pedestals, selling more than a fantasy. In 20 minutes, those beans will melt through your stomach lining and Big PageÔÇÖs ÔÇ£Sex on DrugsÔÇØ will blast through the speakers with the same euphoric feeling that roars through your core.
To capture the experience of a strip club as legendary as Pink Pony in soundwaves seems somewhere between unlikely and impossible but together with producer Will Power, Page managed to hit a bullseye on this cut from TYPD (Things Young Ppl Do). From the pulsing synths in the intro to the drugged out hook reminiscing about month-long binges and hands scrunching up bedsheets, the hedonistic affair sets the tone for an anything-goes environment best explored after 2am.
ÔÇ£Yea, ughÔÇª the b***h horny She can go on and on, on until the morning Thick white girl, I met her at Pink Pony Glass tables, Hollywood lines until the morning ThatÔÇÖs how she on it, thatÔÇÖs what it be like Brought her to the club showed her that VIP life Chewing on e-bones till she couldn’t see right Them the type of bad bitches that we likeÔÇØ
If youÔÇÖre looking for the catalyst to a big night, pop a bottle to this one. Instead, PageÔÇÖs vivid painting is so articulate that you can practically see neon beads of filth melting down a dancerÔÇÖs torso with every bass thump. Blast this in the late night and get down with things young people do.
