Sometimes I Get a Good Feeling: Classic Sample Gets a Dubstep Twist in Wooli and Tape B’s “Dopamine”
You've screamed it, danced to it and maybe even cried to it—but we're willing to bet you've never heard Etta James' timeless lyric quite like this before.
You know the one: "Oh-oh, sometimes I get a good feeling."
The refrain, which Avicii famously sampled in 2011 to release his generational dance anthem "Levels," has now been repurposed into a dubstep anthem by Wooli and Tape B. The track, "Dopamine," is out now after the duo cleared the influential sample with James' team.
Imagine the fang-dripping intensity of dubstep entwined with the velvet elegance of Etta James—this new track harnesses both with breathtaking finesse. A festival favorite in the making, "Dopamine" is both soulful and sinister, oscillating between dulcet vocals and squelching bass drops. Take a listen below.
The release shouldn't come as a surprise to fans of Tape B, who has made nostalgic dubstep his calling card. Wooli, one of the genre's most beloved artists, said he's been eyeing a collaboration with the Turkish electronic music virtuoso for a long time.
"I have been a massive fan of Tape B for a while and it was only a matter of time until we did something together," Wooli explained in a press release. "We originally layered the Etta James vocal over our instrumental as a placeholder. As we began playing it out, we fell in love with it and tried everything to get her team on board. We are honored to have been approved to use such a legendary vocal and we feel it really completes the record!"
