Dark Light

It’s super-kitsh, uber-tacky and the baseline is that it’s just brilliant. Recently featured in Visitor’s minimix for Discobelle, this remix of Richard Marx – “Should Have Known Better” is just major street-cred awesomeness. It has this absolutely magic Baywatch 1992 feel to it. Those vocals with that reverb, the overall rhythm and of course the synth work proves once again that you can turn into a modern day icon with DJs nowadays…

Richard Marx – Should Have Known Better (Fm Attack 2012 radio Remix) [audio:https://sodwee.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Should-Have-Known-Better-Fm-Attack-2012-radio-Remix.mp3]

Richard Noel Marx (born September 16, 1963 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American adult contemporary and pop/rock singer, songwriter, musician, and record producer. He had a string of hit singles in the late 1980s and 1990s, including “Endless Summer Nights”, “Right Here Waiting”, “Now and Forever”, and “Hazard”. Although most of his major hit songs were slow ballads, many of his songs had a classic rock style, such as “Don’t Mean Nothing”, “Should’ve Known Better,” “Satisfied,” and “Too Late To Say Goodbye”. Marx placed himself in the record books by being the first solo artist to have his first seven singles hit the Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart (3, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1, 4). His record sales worldwide exceed 30 million. Aside from songs that he’s written and recorded for himself, he has written, co-written, and produced successful tracks for other artists such as “This I Promise You” by NSYNC and “Dance With My Father” by Luther Vandross. The latter song won several Grammy Awards. His 14th and latest chart topper, “Long Hot Summer,” performed by Keith Urban, gave Marx the distinction of having a song he wrote or co-write top the charts in four different decades.
