It has soul, it has a bouncy bass driving the track forward, it has a galloping drum pattern and delicate, warm keys. And then Boudah’s vocal sweeps you off your feet while telling such a heartfelt story, although its not for you, it feels like you are part of the track, the subject that everything is dancing around.
Such a powerful development in a piece of music that is predominantly electronic, yet with so many real instruments, this could easily be a performance of many musicians. Imagine that. The mix exaggerates the sense of space and position of each sound which allows the vocal all the air and sense of presence to bring her closer to you. It’s amazing.
If you listen to this track on headphones, it is one of the most personal experiences you could ever have with a piece of music. And its buried right in the middle of a superb LP by Zed Bias called Different Response available on Exit Records. For me this a stand out feature of the LP is the vocal production, which is inspiring to say the very least.
