Something About You is Tensnake's follow up single to his 2010 hit Coma Cat. It's got a similar vibe to it, one clearly influenced by 80s and 90s electronic music with a hint of disco. The EP also contains a remix by Jas Shaw.
The song itself sounds very similar to the crop of songs that came with the wave of early nineties house. Slow tempo, very simple beats and rhythm, and piano. That said, the other thing that made early nineties house (to me, at least) was the powerful vocals. This track goes for a much quieter and softer voice, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
The remix is actually really similar to the original version. You could almost imagine it being a first draft of the song, before it had been polished into it's current incarnation. That's not to say it's bad. It actually sounds like it came from the early nineties. Simple bassline, drum machine and sharp, cutting rhythm mixed in with the echoey effects-laden vocals of the original make it a pretty decent mix.
All in all, it definitely won't be everybody's idea of a great track, and I myself probably wouldn't listen to it very often. If you liked Coma Cat, then there's a fairly high chance that you'd either like this or not mind it. In my eyes, though, it's not a standout song.
