Re:Sound‘s very own Michael Hooker kicks off his production with the type of resounding intensity that leaves you grasping for air. Teasing, grainy percussion accompanied by a solitary, pulsing keyboard stab are all that is required at this point in time. However, when the bassline hits at two minutes in the rush of soaring emotion lets you know all about it. It is almost like the producer has hot-wired the stereo into creating a wealth of fiery effects to go alongside the defiant rhythm section, but whatever has happened in the process it very much sounds hot and excellent. Theo Schmitt’s deft rework then adds a tougher element into the arrangement with taught Kick drums demanding centre stage while the array of dazzling effects remain resolutely in place.
