Probably one of the best produced tracks in the last year in my opinion. It’s just the right side of grooving house, whilst still remaining sophisticated and deep. I think one of the elements that keeps the track sounding fresh is the short sustained stabs.
With deep house it’s easy to over do the big, reverby stabs, and whilst you get a nice groovey track, it definately wouldn’t stand up in a peak time set.
Personally, I’d love to dissect this track and learn everything from it! The bassline is lovely, warm, and not too over powering whilst still being very audible, the hats are quite reserved yet still prominent, and the percussion is very evident without sending the track into a tribal-esque vibe.
But today, all I want to know is - How to get that synth stab sound? It’s lovely and plucky, filtered paino-ish at first, but as the filter is released (during the break and after the drop) it becomes electronic-ish and edgy whilst still being silky and smooth and keeping that house vibe.
How’s it done? Is it two synths? Are they chords? It starts it’s filtered journey at about 1.30 in and progresses through the track, being very evident after the drop…
Anyway, here’s the tune.
