Jochen Simms teamed up with Luciana on the new single, Wicked Workout. DJ Ron Slomowicz caught wind of the electro banger and reviewed the new release for About.com’s Dance/ Electronica column, featuring the track as the website’s “Song Of The Day“.
“Great songs can be interpreted in different ways by the people listening to them. For “Wicked Workout,” the feisty new track from Jochen Simms, you could imagine Luciana as a clubber singing to a dj or as someone addressing their lover for some intimate interaction. However I don’t think it is a song aimed at a personal trainer (unless, of course, you live in GCB-land.) Rising Phonetic/Peace Bisquit talent Jochen Simms (remixer of Beyonce, Katy B, Cazwell) turned out an energetic electro stomper that breaks down into an almost ethereal 808 State “Cubik”-inspired groove before the electro noises kick in for an insane, erm, build up and climax. Miss Luciana is at her best when she is being playful and naughty over a sick electro track and lyrics like “Pump me a little bit harder, work me out a little bit longer, make me sweat” let you know that she is clearly in her element here. “Wicked Workout” was a definite highlight of Amsterdam Dance Event 2011 and is sure to be a massive hit on dance floors around the world. Watch for this one to explode from the spring into the summer.. now that would be a wicked workout..”
