When browsing the ‘net, you come across a lot of hyperbole. But when uttered through reputable sources, I stop and take a listen. It sometimes works out; and other times, I wasted three-five minutes of not listening to this. The hype went something like: hottest electronic cut of 2009. Since the club this year hasn’t seen my fancy footwork, nor have I kept my ear to this scene, I figured, why not?
Joy Orbison outta London starts M83- minimalistic, slowly begins to build with light laser-like synths; female vocal stabs are set in motion and the funk begins care of an upbeat tempo and BASS. Quality UK-garage, I guess. Not sure what the electronic track of the year could/would be. Decide for yourself if this is it. Most club tracks do repeat themselves – loop over and over again so you can find that groove. Maybe you’ll step to the dub and work your two-step.
