Tim: This pairing (Italian, believe it or not) did a rather good Hurts remix a few years back, so I was a bit intrigued when I saw an original track come along; there’s a fairly dull minute of intro so let’s jump straight in.
Tim: A lot going on there, and it reminds me of my disappointment that Italo disco never really made it to the UK – admittedly I’d not been born at the time, but it’d be nice if I had knowledge of some classic stuff to get into.
Tom: That’s a very specific disappointment, but yes, I get what you mean. I find myself complaining that there isn’t much of anything in the lower frequencies here — all treble, no bass — but at least it’s clearly a stylistic decision, not just “yeah, we can do without”.
Tim: As it is, I’ve got this, which’ll do nicely – there’s no big moment, no drop where everything explodes, but it is pretty good throughout.
Tom: “Pretty good throughout”. Not a ringing endorsement, but it does feel about right. This isn’t about Big Drops, and that’s fine.
We’ve layers of instrumentation, building up and down as the song progresses, making a very listenable (and danceable) track. Has anyone got a Best Of playlist?
