What happens when you get two of the biggest names in electronic music, and then partner them with Jarvis Cocker? Well, something pretty epic happens. Yes that’s right electro/tech-house’s finest have got together with the Pulp man himself for this absolute belter of a track, that quite simply a slice of genius.
A driving kick coupled with dark and hunting glitches and a bubbling techno-esq baseline drive the track along into a peak time stormer, add to that Cockers haunting poetic lyrics and that distinctive voice, and the hairs on the back of your neck will be on edge. The reverb heavy organ adds a haunting tone that’s reminiscent of early orbital, and when it really gets going its hypnotic tones are enough to drive anyone into a frenzy.
We’re looking forward to the remixes, but it’s safe to say this is one of the tracks of the summer.
