We kick off with the haunting vibes of Play With Me. The intro gets us into a progressive mood with dark tones dominating proceedings. Underneath a rhythmic percussive framework lies a mesmerizing plucky bassline and swirling melodic pads. Softer, melodic motifs join a spine-tingling spoken word which adds a romanticised narrative to the groove. A definite floor destroyer that is not to be missed.
Samsara intros with a gritty stab which leads to a shuffling hi hat sequence and muted kick drum. Rich, authentic voices and tense pads prime the goose bumps as a tight drum and rolling bassline combo take control. Classic style chords find their way into the sound, keeping the groove fresh and on point. It’s the intensity of those gritty pads and the enchanting vocals that grab attention, making this a track that will force you to the floor, no doubt.
